At Sight Scotland, we know there's no place like home.

That's why our homes are unique, and provide the support which is right for those who choose to live there.

Set in the Inch area of Edinburgh, adjacent to a park, Allermuir is a home for life for adults with visual impairment and additional disabilities. We offer 24-hour care and support, and personalised experiences to help make sure everyone can live as independently as they choose.
