Visitors with disabilities are normally asked on arrival about any help they may need. Two wheelchairs are available at the visitor centre.
Access is across level ground with some areas of granite sets to cross, where visitors using wheelchairs would need assistance.
All Historic Scotland areas are accessible, although grassed areas can be soft. The battlements have six sloped grass and concrete access ramps at a 20 degree slope. There is a slight step leading to the barrack rooms where all audio buttons and displays are accessible. There is normally a steward on duty in the Grand Magazine and barrack rooms.
There is an audio visual presentation of The Fort George Story in English, French, German and Italian held in the casemate adjacent to the Camp Cinema. The ‘Music of the Redcoats’ is played in the officers’ guardroom at Principal Bridge. There are small gardens with seats to the north and south of the Principal Bridge.
During the summer, a train operates as transport for visitors on a circular route within the site with picking up and dropping off points. The train has been designed to accommodate wheelchairs.
