The end of the summer season is approaching for the paddle steamer Waverley - and with it your last chance to sail from Rothesay this summer.

Today (Sunday, August 23) she sails from Rothesay to Lochranza, at the north end of Arran, via the Kyles of Bute, with a cruise to Skipness Castle to follow.

Then on Wednesday, August 26, there’s the final sail this season through the Kyles to Tighnabruaich and Tarbert and a cruise on Loch Fyne.

On Thursday, August 27, she sails for Largs, Millport, Brodick and the Arran coast, and on August 29 there’s a final chance this year to enjoy a short Saturday afternoon sail through the Kyles to Tighnabruaich.

Andy O’Brian, Waverley’s captain said: “ There is no better way to spend the day than relaxing on deck and watching the spectacular scenery of Scotland’s west coast slip by. Take advantage of this last chance to sail on Waverley this summer.”
