Tour Description

Explore further afield with the picturesque 3 Bridges Bus and Boat Tour. Board your bus in the heart of Edinburgh for a tour to Queensferry, followed by a relaxing cruise on the Firth of Forth.

Take in views of the Three Bridges as you have never seen them before. View Blackness Castle (as featured in Outlander and Outlaw King) and known as the ship that never sails. We pass Limekilns village, as mentioned in Robert Louis Stevenson’e Kidnapped. It was from Limekilns that David Balfour and Alan Breck were carried across the Forth in a rowing boat. During your tour you will find plenty of opportunities to see a variety of marine wildlife including seals.

Save £3 on Cream Tea on board with your 3 Bridges Bus and Boat Tour ticket (subject to availability).

Why not explore the beautiful conservation town of Queensferry before or after tour boat cruise? With its picturesque harbour and stunning coastal views, Queensferry also offers a range of local eateries and gift shops – check the return times with your driver.
