Hi. Unfortunately this tour may not be suitable for a mobility scooter. Getting to and from Ulva island includes stepping on and off the wharf and onto boats. There’s also several steps on the wharf and on the track that would have to be negotiated. The track is also not really mobility scooter friendly. Hope this was of some help :)
