Earlier this month, I enjoyed a fabulous trip with Maid of the Forth. Leaving from Hawes Pier, South Queensferry, the cruise was 1.5 hours and you will sail under the three magnificent Forth Bridges – The Forth Road Bridge, the new Queensferry Crossing (the UK’s tallest bridge!) and finally the UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Forth Bridge.
Sailing under these structures and getting up close is an incredible experience. You will also sail around Inchcolm Island (optional trip to land here available) and see many sealife such as seals and also the occasional puffin between May and early August.
The cruise is running at around 25% capacity, so it is extremely spacious on board. There is plenty of hand sanitiser and masks are to be worn (and are by all crew).
There are some incredible scenes including the Fife coastline and Edinburgh’s wonderful skyline.
The weather was not great when we took our trip but hopefully you can see from the photos that this trip is incredible in all weathers.
