Do local hotels offer parking deals?
Why not try the Elgin Hotel, in Charlestown, By Dunfermline. Just four miles from the port. The Hotel overlooks the River Forth, has plenty of space to stretch your legs, and is located in a historic village, part of Scotland's Lime history, and frequented by the Royal Family over the centuries. Free parking while you are away and just a short trip to the port for your ship
Is there an easy way to get to St Andrews?
If you have not booked an excursion on board you can either take a taxi – which might make sense if there are a few passengers travelling together, or train to the nearby station of Leuchars, from where you need to take a taxi or one of the local bus shuttles. Find out more about getting around »
Where can I go for a walk?
The ship arrives in an industrial dock, so there are no immediate scenic walks. The courtesy shuttle service will take you to Dunfermline, the ancient capital of Scotland, where walks are available in the beautiful Pittencrieff Park, donated to the city by Andrew Carnegie. Guided walks, and walks along the Fife Coastal Path, are also available. Find out more about walks in the area »
Do the taxis take credit cards?
