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.
Eating and drinking on board
There are a range of dining options on board the PS Waverley. Bring your own packed lunch or treat yourself to a meal or snack from the Dining Saloon or Caledonian Tea Bar. Jeanie Deans Lounge is also open for refreshments.
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!Book Accommodation

We have had so many compliments about how much everyone enjoyed our wedding.'
40th celebration'My husband and I came here to celebrate my 40th birthday and we truly had a magnificent time. There was everything that you needed in your accommodation even washing liquid and conditioner for the washing machine. The hot tub and steam room were a real highlight as well as the living log fire.'
Right up there with the best'We have travelled the world and stayed in all sorts of accommodation - Loch Lomond Waterfront is right up there with the best. The facilities, quality of fixtures and fittings and the setting all add up to a superb holiday experience and one that I have no hesitation in recommending to anyone. Outstanding!'
Breathtaking views'Where to start! We chose the waterfront for our wedding because of the absolutely breathtaking views, location and surroundings. You can't put a price on a view like that. We were planning a small intimate wedding for 28, mid week at the waterfront and living all the way down in Kent, organising could have been so difficult if it wasn't for Sheena the wedding coordinators help. Everything was organised to a fabulous standard and despite my millions of emails she didn't get sick of me and was happy to email pictures and explain thoroughly. We were so lucky to have...
