Leith is not far away and Fred. Olsen sail regularly from there. Get the Fred Olsen brochure and I am sure that you will find a suitable cruise.

In belated answer to your question on why ships are not using Rosyth as a port I think it could be that the modern ships are just too large to fit under the bridges., Especially when the tide is out. Several of them are scheduled to anchor out in the Forth & tender passengers into South Queensferry during the 2009 summer season (only as a port of call ) not an embarkation point. I cruised into the docks at Leith last year on 'The Spirit of Adventure' which is a very small ship compared to most these days. There again, I doubt if the entry to Leith docks could permit very large vessels.

By Stacey Williams

Stacey Williams's blog

I have just returned from my last trip of 2016 and I am all refreshed ready for December which I can’t believe starts tomorrow! A couple of months ago I decided to book a few days in London as I did last November because I had such a great time then. Kevin hasn’t been before so I wanted to squeeze as much into two days as we could.We took the lunch time train down on Sunday which took four hours from Carlisle to Euston. Once there, we managed to navigate ourselves from there to...
