Win a trip on board Maid of the Forth
Sorry, this competition has closed.
To celebrate the start of their 2017 season, we’ve teamed up with Maid of the Forth to offer a group of up to four people the chance to cruise out to the stunning, wildlife-inhabited Inchcolm Island, on board one of their acclaimed sightseeing tours.
Enjoy some friends or family time with a cruise from South Queensferry to the historic island, located just four miles from the world-famous Forth Bridges and Queensferry Crossing. Be welcomed on board by the Skipper with the chance to go behind-the-scenes.
Once you land at Inchcholm, ramble around the magnificent monastic abbey, explore the trails, relax on the beach with a picnic and spot the seabirds. And then there are those spectacular views of Edinburgh, Fife and the Forth Bridges.
Enjoy refreshments on board the family-run Maid of the Forth vessel which contains two spacious decks, including the popular open-top deck which is ideal for viewing the local grey seals - keep your eyes peeled for porpoises, dolphins and even the occasional whale.
The daily sailings from South Queensferry all offer the opportunity to land on Inchcolm Island where passengers can spend 90 mins exploring before the boat returns to South Queensferry – passengers can also stay on board the Maid for a shorter trip!
To be in with a chance of winning a three hour trip for a group of up to four people on board Maid of the Forth and landing on Inchcolm Island, simply answer the question below.
