What’s on board
Waverley has excellent onboard facilities including a restaurant serving hot and cold snacks, two bars, a tearoom, heated lounges and a souvenir shop.
The Waverley has been magnificently restored with towering funnels, timber decks and gleaming varnish and brass. As the last seagoing paddle steamer in the world, it is one of the world’s greatest historic ships and an important part of Scotland’s heritage.
Today’s offer is a brilliant way to see this magnificent steam ship in action as well as enjoying some of Scotland’s best scenery. We can’t guarantee the wildlife but porpoises, dolphins, whales and even basking sharks have been spotted from the Waverley.
Sound like a good day out? Then set sail for today’s Big Deal.
