Edinburgh (Rosyth) cruise port

This facility was originality built as a ferry terminal with seating for approximately 250 guests but this seating is only accessible once guests have checked-in and passed through security. The facility is used in the a.m. for disembarking guests and for embarking guests in the p.m. so please adhere to the check-in time printed on your cruise ticket.

There is no left luggage facility, and no other services are within easy walking distance.

The distance between the terminal and the ship is 1km so we recommend using the transport service provided by Low-Liner Coaches. The gangway can be difficult to negotiate for mobility restricted guests and is subject to tide.

This is a rather isolated port with the nearest town - Inverkeithing - being a 15 minute drive by car/taxi. Inverkeithing is also the nearest railway station. Dunfermline is approximately a 30 minute drive and the nearest hotel is North Queensferry looking out over the Forth Road/Rail bridges.
