Beach Wheelchairs Seton Sands have a Hippocampe and Nomad beach wheelchair available for free hire from the leisure team at Haven Seton Sands. This is a joint project between Haven, Beach Wheelchairs and East Lothian Council. The wheelchairs are not restricted to customers of Haven but should be booked in advance.
|We have a Hippocampe wheelchair, a medium sized wheelchair suitable for children and small adults. The Hippocampe is low to the ground, so perfect for getting close to the sand and sea. However, the fixed front wheel may make it more difficult for some people. Our chair has an arm rest, leg rest, lap strap, chest harness and head rest.|
|The Nomad beach wheelchair has a simple manual wheelchair frame and a lapstrap for users. It has a wide wheel base making it very stable. The footrests flip to the side to make accessing the wheelchair easier. Some people find the nomad wheelchair a bit tricky to push on the hard surface but it performs well on the soft sand.|
There is no hoist at this location.
How to Book
Please phone Haven at Seton Sands on 01875 813333 and ask for the Leisure Team. There is a disabled parking bay in the Village where the collection point for the wheelchair is in a storage container, and it is a short walk to the beach.
Seton Sands is a long rural beach on the South Bank of the Firth Forth between Port Seton and Longniddry and is accessible by bus no 26 from Edinburgh. East Lothian Council recently constructed a boardwalk to improve access to the beach.
