Arriving at Rosyth
Cruise ship passengers most frequently arrive in port around 8am, 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. Some ships also offer a coach service to a nearby rail station (Inverkeithing) where regular trains take you to a wide variety of destinations.
For those making their own plans for the day, please use the shuttle to the Terminal Building (two minutes) where a Welcome Team of local volunteers will be delighted to give you information on various options for your day.
The Welcome Team provide a free bus service throughout the day from the Terminal Building to Dunfermline (15 minutes), the ancient capital of Scotland, and to North Queensferry, in the shadow of the Forth bridges.
There is no shopping at the port although a range of souvenirs will be available.
The terminal lounge has free wifi for use by passengers and crew.
Taxis are available from the terminal building, with journeys to the rail station costing around £10 for four people.
