Competition: Win a trip on board the Maid of the Forth

Post Thumbnail

To celebrate their summer 2019 season, we’ve teamed up with Maid of the Forth to give away five family sightseeing cruises!

Five winners and their families will have the chance to cruise out from South Queensferry to the stunning, wildlife-inhabited Inchcolm Island, on board one of their three-hour acclaimed sightseeing tours.  This historic island is located just four miles from the world-famous Forth Bridges and Queensferry Crossing.

Once you land at Inchcolm, ramble around the magnificent monastic abbey, explore the trails, relax on the beach with a picnic and spot the seabirds.  Then there are those spectacular views of Edinburgh, Fife and the Forth Bridges.

Enjoy refreshments on board the family-run Maid of the Forth vessel which contains two spacious decks, including the popular open-top deck which is ideal for viewing the local grey seals – keep your eyes peeled for porpoises, dolphins and even the occasional whale.

The daily sailings from South Queensferry all offer the opportunity to land on Inchcolm Island where passengers can spend 90 minutes exploring before the boat returns to South Queensferry.
