The Tralee Bay Chalet is situated on a breath-taking part of the west coast of Scotland, just north of Oban, at Tralee Bay Holiday Park in Benderloch, Argyll and Bute.
The chalet is fully adapted to meet the needs of those with disabilities, including Motor Neurone Disease, although it is available to anyone who wishes to use it. If you are affected by MND you will receive a discount, and may also be to apply for a ‘Time Out Grant’ from MND Scotland to put towards the costs.
The holiday park lies adjacent to the beach at Ardmucknish Bay and it offers views down the Firth of Lorn, with the island of Kerrera and Mull filling the horizon. You can drive your van or car on to the beach for easier access; just turn right out of Tralee Bay Holiday Park and drive along the road about 300 metres and take the second right onto a small track road. There is a gate to go through which must be opened and shut again once the car is through. The path then leads to a small gravel ‘car park’ which drifts on to beach.
Tralee Bay is a Scottish Tourist Board 5 Star Holiday Park. Facilities include a children’s play area, mini golf, launderette, nearby forest walks, and Tralee’s popular Rally Karting Centre is close by.
There are also lots of nearby attractions.
Allan Bar, diagnosed with MND in 2003, visited the Tralee Bay Chalet and thoughtfully provided us with this short review for other people with MND.
