Forth Bridges Bus & Boat Tour

This tour is currently out of season

Full tour takes about 3 hours

This tour is available during the summer season only.

Take in unrivalled views of the iconic Forth Road and Rail bridges and of Edinburgh and Fife's coastlines. You'll also see the new crossing, currently under construction and the recently launched HMS Queen Elizabeth.  If you're lucky, you might see puffins, and if you don't see a seal you're guaranteed to sail again free. 

Highlights include:

  • Princes Street
  • New Town
  • Queensferry
  • Forth Railway Bridge
  • Inchcolm Island*
  • Forth Road Bridge
  • Queensferry Crossing (under construction)
  • HMS Queen Elizabeth

*Please note: In order to visit Inchcolm Island you need to purchase a ticket, which can be acquired on board the boat. You will be on the Island for approximately 1 ½ hours before picking up the next boat to complete the rest of the cruise and return to Hawes Pier, South Queensferry and the bus. For this reason it is not possible to visit the Island from the last tour of the day.

Tour start and end times vary according to tides. Please allow at least three hours for your tour (excluding time for a visit to Inchcolm Island).
