What people are saying about Queensferry

Our cream tea trip was cancelled but we were moved to the Inchcolm Island trip instead. Really enjoyed this boat trip. Went out on a windy day but this did not detract from the outing. Saw seals in the water and out on the rocks and even saw some puffins flying to and from Inchcolm Island. Missed the cream tea but could maybe do this another day. Recommended.
