Welcome to Rosyth

Cruise ship passengers most frequently arrive in port, having sailed up the River Forth with the city of Edinburgh on the south side, and then passing directly under the majestic spans of the historic Forth Bridge, which has been carrying rail traffic for almost 125 years.

Rosyth is a busy industrial port. Once the boat is secure pre-booked excursions will leave directly from the ship’s side.
