Paddle Steamer Waverley Sailings from Tighnabruaich 2016

2016 is a very special year for the Paddle Steamer Waverley as it marks the 70th anniversary of her launch in 1946.

In 1975 that this world famous paddle steamer (the last ocean going paddle steamer in the world) took back to the waves after the Paddle Steamer Preservation Society bought her for £1 following her retirement. Now, every year thousands of passengers enjoy relaxing on deck in the summer sun or in one of the period lounges as the paddle steamer cruises sedately through the dramatic sea lochs of the west coast of Scotland including the Kyles of Bute.
