Forth Bridges Cruise


Join us for our

Forth Bridges Cruise

Discover marvels of engineering with this cruise under the 3 Forth Bridges..


A 7 night cruise starting & ending in Nova Spero’s home port of Arbroath. Set sail for the Forth & its three bridges, stop over at the Port of Leith before heading inland to visit the Kelpies or perhaps the Falkirk Wheel. We will then head back up north past the Isle of May. En route we will visit a variety of ports & harbours, scenic landmarks and iconic attractions.

The nature of our cruises is to provide a “theme” and to make the most of the options available to us based on weather, tides, access and things like local events & festivals.

Day 1:Join Nova Spero in Arbroath, Nova Spero’s home port and settle in for the evening.

Day 2:We depart Arbroath heading on past the Bell Rock and Isle of May to Inchkeith or Burntisland for the night.

Day 3:We will sail down the Forth and under its 3 iconic bridges for Grangemouth where we will berth for the evening.   Choose whether to walk around the Kelpies or to visit the Falkirk Wheel – or both! (Alternative cruise option is to spend time in Leith to attend Edinburgh’s Fringe Festival)

Day 4 & 5:  Depart Grangemouth for the Port of Leith.  Enjoy a full day and night in Leith.

Day 6: We depart Leith for our return journey to Arbroath stopping at Inchkeith or Burnt Island for the night.

Day 7:We have our last evening in Arbroath.

Day 8:  After breakfast, disembark at your leisure.

The choice will depend on you and of course the weather.

Food & Drink

We include breakfast, lunch and dinner each day of your cruise.  Our cook will use the finest locally sourced produce, fresh from suppliers to deliver mouthwatering dishes.

Dinner will be the main meal of the day and will be served between 6pm and 7pm in sheltered anchorage or in harbour.  If we are still on the move we can dine if the water is calm or wait until we reach sheltered waters.  The other meals of the day require more flexibility as the boat may be moving depending on our schedule for the day.

A bar with wines, beers and spirits will be available.


Scotland’s waters and coasts are a playground for a wide variety of wildlife from minke whales & porpoises to puffins and sea eagles.   Binoculars and cameras are recommended.

Visitor Attractions

At the start of each cruise the captain will meet with the all of the guests to discuss the planned route for your cruise which will take into account tides and weather.  We will endeavour to visit some of Scotland’s finest distilleries, castles and attractions from suitable nearby mooring.

Walking & Mountaineering

There will be plenty of opportunity to explore Scotland’s hills and mountains so bring along your walking/hiking equipment.
