The Firth of Forth is simply overflowing with myths, turbulent history and fascinating marine wildlife. Join Forth Boat Tours on a 90 minute cruise onboard one of their superb vessels. Departing from South Queensferry, which is only a short distance from Scotland's bustling Capital City of Edinburgh.

The Three Bridges & Inchcolm Island Cruise  -

See the Three Bridges as you have never seen them before! 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. There are also views of Limekilns village, mentioned in Robert Louis Stevenson's Kidnapped. It was from Limekilns that      David Balfour and Alan Breck were carried across the Forth in a rowing boat. You will also see the Three    Bridges as you have never seen them before.


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. The Marine Wildlife, during your tour, you will find plenty of opportunities to see a wide variety of marine wildlife     including seabirds, porpoises and seals.
