The Three Bridges & Inchcolm Island Cruise -

Take in beautiful panoramas of the Edinburgh skyline, the Kingdom of Fife and the historically important island of Inchcolm with its medieval abbey. Set sail for a very special island in the Firth of Forth – home to the best-preserved group of monastic buildings in Scotland. Originally a priory founded by David I, the abbey saw conflict as well as calm. Landing passes for the island can be purchased in addition to the boat ticket.
Blackness Castle, Three Bridges Cruise (includes a complimentary Cream Tea) - take in views of Blackness Castle, the ship that never sails and featured in Outlander.

For your comfort relax onboard in the observation lounge or on the outside decks and listen to the guided commentary while you enjoy a drink from the bar.
