Maid of the Forth: Enjoy views of the Forth Bridges from the open top deck as you cruise downriver past Inchgarvie and towards Inchcolm. The Maid stops briefly at Inchcolm to disembark those passengers who have opted to go ashore to explore then the cruise continues around the island and back up to South Queensferry.

The onboard commentary tells you of the features as they pass and the skipper gives live input whenever some wildlife is sighted. You can see Seals, comical little Puffins, Cormorants, Eider Ducks, Fulmars, Gannets and Guillemots as well as occasional sightings of Porpoise and Dolphins.
