Sailing area

The sailing area is full of surprises. The immense Forth Road and Rail bridges loom overhead. The Firth is important for nature conservation, including the Islands of the Firth of Forth, from Inchcolm, a fortified island housing an Augustinian abbey, to Inchkeith, which has had a colourful history and is home to a lighthouse. Inchmickery is also fortified, has been used as a film location and is now an RSPB reserve.

Further out in the estuary are more islands comprising this group, which is a Special Protection Area, host to over 90,000 breeding sea birds every year. Sightings of seals in the area adds to the excitement.

Let us help you explore.
