What a lovely trip and an effective antidote to the Fringe crowds, it was so refreshing to visit a place unspoiled by signs, ropes, fences and which simply relies on a bit of common sense from its visitors. Staff on "Maid of the Forth" were very helpful and pointed out lots of extra sights in addition to the standard commentary. We picnicked on the island (take food!) and explored the abbey to our hearts' content, but could have done with another 30 minutes to an hour to fully enjoy all the little nooks and crannies around the WW2 features. We all enjoyed the varied history of the island and the teenagers learned a valuable lesson about keeping away from baby birds! Great day, superb views.
