PS Waverley Paddle Steamer Service | Loch Lomond Waterfront

PS Waverley

All Aboard The PS Waverly

The PS Waverley is the last seagoing paddle steamer in the world. First launched in 1947, she was named after Sir Walter Scott’s Waverley novels. In service until 1973, the ship was then acquired by the Paddle Steamer Preservation Society.

Since 1975, the PS Waverley has run a passenger service. This video shows her first ever public sailing.

The steamer has undergone several major upgrades in recent years, rebuilding and restoring her to her former 1940s appearance. So, 120 years after she was first launched, this historic paddle steamer is still on top form!

Where does the PS Waverley sail?

Waverley Excursions operates a passenger service from various British ports. Regularly sailing from the Clyde, the Thames, the South Coast and the Bristol Channel. Along with offering private charters.

During the summer months, the PS Waverley mainly operates on the Clyde, with local calling points such as Glasgow and Helensburgh.

Helenburgh is just around a half-hour drive from us here at Loch Lomond Waterfront, so this makes a great day trip during your stay.

Souvenir Shop

Pick up a souvenir, such as sweets, a book, a gift or memento, in the shop to remember your cruise by. You can even send a postcard to loved ones at home from the ship’s own Victorian postbox!

    'The Most Perfect Day and The Most Perfect Venue! Where to start, I always knew I wanted to get married at Loch Lomond, just had to find the right venue and I was blown away with what The Waterfront had to offer. We got married in the conservatory due to typical Scottish Summer in July it decided to rain on our wedding day.
