All of the thoughtfully furnished bedrooms are en-suite and equipped with TV, direct dial telephone, hairdryer and tea/coffee making facilities. The hotel offers a restaurant & bar. Sorry No Lift, however bedrooms are located on the ground and first floor only.
We make our way to Bo’ness station in time to join our steam train for our 10-mile return trip along the Bo’ness & Kinneil Railway Line. Soak up the atmosphere & sights as we travel along the Forth Estuary, through woodlands, past waterfalls & over the Avon viaduct. Upon our return to Bo’ness station we re-join our coach and make our way to South Queensferry where there will be some free time, giving you chance to obtain some lunch. We then make our way to Port Edgar Marina to join our boat for our cruise of the Three Bridges, with spectacular views, beautiful panoramas of the Edinburgh skyline to the south and the Kingdom of Fife to the north. Watch out for marine wildlife including many seabirds, seals and the occasional porpoise. While on board we also enjoy an included cream tea. Following our cruise, we return to the hotel.
We spend a free morning in the large town of Dunfermline, once the capital of Scotland. Here you will find a wide number of historical venues such as the royal palace, a 12th century Abbey (which is the final resting place of Robert the Bruce and the burial site of 11 other Scottish kings and queens) plus much more. In the afternoon we make our way to the Royal Burgh of Culross where we visit the 16th century palace and its beautiful garden. Culross is one of Scotland’s most picturesque towns and wandering around this charming town is like stepping back in time to the 16th
We enjoy a scenic day as we make our way to the charming fishing village of Anstruther, in the East Neuk of Fife. After spending some free time here, we continue to St. Andrews, a charming and historic town, known worldwide as ‘The Home of Golf’. However, it’s not all about golf here! The medieval centre of St. Andrews consists of a series of narrow alleyways and cobbled streets with shops, cafes and restaurants. There is also a castle, ruined cathedral and two beaches.Back to top
