Waverley made her triumphant return to service in August 2020 following her boiler refit. However Waverley is now critically short of funds to survive this winter. Without further support she can’t return to service in 2021. We are therefore asking for your help by donating to Waverley’s COVID-19 Relief Appeal.

The Paddle Steamer Preservation Society (Scottish Branch) is pleased to announce that its annual Evening Fund Raising Cruise aboard Waverley will take place on Wednesday 10th July. Once again the Branch is offering a unique cruise which does not feature in Waverley’s regular cruising programme.

Waverley will depart Tighnabruaich at 5:45pm, Largs at 7:30pm and Keppel at 7:50pm. Tickets are £22 in advance or £25 on the evening if purchasing aboard Waverley. Further discounts are available for parties of 10 or more.

In recent years the success of the Scottish Branch Evening Charter has allowed the Branch to fund projects specific to Waverley with over £30,000 being granted since 2016.

Tickets for this unique sailing are on sale now – call Waverley Excursions on 0141 243 2224 or book on-line.
