Rosslyn Chapel and Hadrian's Wall Small Group Day Tour from Edinburgh

411 reviews
Take the stress out of planning your own way to Rosslyn Chapel and Hadrian’s Wall on a guided tour that includes round-trip transport from Edinburgh. Letting someone else drive between the dispersed landmarks allows you to focus on the scenery rather than the road. Plus, exploring the attractions with a guide means you are party to historical commentary that brings the landmarks to life.

We took a boat trip from Seahouses harbour. Booking was easy at the Billy Shields kiosk. It was a lovely sunny day with a slight breeze and we enjoyed the one and a half hour trip round the islands. At this time of year we saw a large colony of grey seals, Grace Darling’s Longstone lighthouse and different types of birds. We would love to do this again earlier in the year to see the puffins. The captain was very knowledgeable too. A definite must do

Due to the COVID pandemic landing on the island is not allowed so you can only view the islands from a boat, trips go from Seahouses Harbour. In September most of the sea birds have left as nesting season is over. However the grey seals are present in plenty, and gannets fly past and if your lucky you may have dolphins accompany your boat, we did! There are several lighthouses including the one in which Grace Darling lived.

There is no better way to spend a day then sailing around the farnes. They are a sight to behold. The wildlife the reside there make it even more amazing from the puffins to the seals. It is a majestic place a must visit
