Trip Info

Enjoy a sightseeing boat tour aboard the Maid of the Forth. This 1.5 hour cruise boards at the historic Hawes Pier in South Queensferry, where you’ll head downriver towards Inchcolm Island. Sit comfortably in the heated saloon and bar, or enjoy the fresh air on the open top deck. Pass underneath the Forth Rail Bridge and get an up-close glimpse of this magnificent piece of Victorian engineering. Pass the Hound Point Oil Terminal and see the supertankers filling up with North Sea Crude oil. Stop at Haystack Rock and watch seals bask in the sunshine. You’ll then dock briefly at the Island to allow some time for exploration. On the return journey you’ll get an even closer look at the abundance of wildlife in the River Forth, while your captain provides narration.
