There is only one way to explore The Three Bridges, UNESCO World Heritage Site. On board one of our boats!
We are an acclaimed family owned visitor attraction, with a choice of four very distinctive cruises.
See the Three Bridges as you have never seen them before! Take in beautiful panoramas of the Edinburgh skyline, the Kingdom of Fife and the historically important island of Inchcolm with its medieval abbey. Set sail for a very special island in the Firth of Forth – home to the best-preserved group of monastic buildings in Scotland. Originally a priory founded by David I, the abbey saw conflict as well as calm. Landing passes for the island can be purchased in addition to the boat ticket.
Relax on board with friends and family in the observation lounge or on the outside decks and listen to the guided commentary while you enjoy your cream tea. Take in views of Blackness Castle, the ship that never sails and featured in Outlander. There are also views of Limekilns village, mentioned in Robert Louis Stevenson’s Kidnapped. It was from Limekilns that David Balfour and Alan Breck were carried across the Forth in a rowing boat. You will also see the Three Bridges as you have never seen them before.
Enjoy the best of both worlds with the flexibility of a Forth Boat Tours Three Bridges Cruise and a Day Rover ticket with the Bo’ness & Kinneil Railway. The trips can be taken the same day or on separate days. This flexible ticket can be used from 1 April to 31 October. Revel in the romance of a golden age. There’s nothing like a departure by steam. Enjoy a scenic ten-mile return train journey to Manuel along the Forth Estuary, through woodlands, past waterfalls and over the Avon Viaduct. Then, join your Forth Boat Tours Three Bridges Cruise, at Hawes Pier, South Queensferry, for unrivalled views of the Edinburgh skyline, Inchcolm Island, and the medieval abbey, the marine wildlife including seals and puffins, and of course, The Three Bridges as you have never seen them before.
We look forward to welcoming you on board!< back
