We walked through the woods to the rocks. Its hilly with uneven ground. However there is a car park nearby where they could be accessed by series of steps. Would still be hilly and uneven once at the houses though. It would really be down to how agile the elderly person is. Some if the volunteers at the houses are indeed elderly themselves
