Optional landing on Inchcolm Island

Combine your 90 minute sightseeing cruise with a landing on Inchcolm Island. If you wish to go ashore at Inchcolm Island you need to purchase a landing pass. You should add a minimum 1½ hours when landing on Inchcolm Island. Explore the island’s historic Abbey – The ‘Iona of the east’ one of the best-preserved group of monastic buildings in Scotland. The Island is also a haven for wildlife and is well-known for its wartime coastal defences.

Please note that the last sailing of the day does NOT allow for a stopover on Inchcolm Island. We only stop at Inchcolm on the final sailing to collect passengers. Inchcolm Island is not suitable for wheelchair users.
