Our 3 hour Inchcolm Landing trip not only includes our 90 minute sightseeing cruise,  but also a visit to Inchcolm.  You will have a 90 minute stop on the island to explore at your own pace before the boat picks you up to resume the remainder of the cruise.

Enjoy the remarkable 12th century Inchcolm Abbey, ascend the narrow spiral staircase to the bell tower for panoramic views of the island, or experience the Hermit's Cell where King Alexander sought refuge after being shipwrecked.

The Abbey and Island are managed by Historic Environment Scotland.

In addition to its sacred historical ruins and abbey, Inchcolm boats numerous wartime fortifications for visitors to discover.  These include old lookout and searchlight posts, artillery gun emplacements and a preserved ammunition tunnel that runs through the island and remains accessible to the public.

Furthermore , Inchcolm offers two beaches where visitors can unwind, take in the stunning vistas of the Fife Coast and Edinburgh Skyline, or just soak up the tranquil atmosphere.

While well behaved dogs are welcomed on the island, they must remain on a leash to safeguard the abundant wildlife.

There are toilet facilities on Inchcolm and a small gift shop and exhibition.
