Welcome aboard Waverley

Waverley’s COVID-19 Relief Appeal

The impact of Covid-19 has resulted in a lack of vital funds to meet the cost of routine winter maintenance on Waverley. In order to return to service this summer Waverley must be dry docked – currently there are insufficient funds to meet this cost – Waverley needs your help to survive the impact of Covid-19.

Our Covid-19 Relief Appeal is open with a target of £350,000 to be raised from individual donations – so far over £330,000 has been donated – we are nearly there!

All donations, large or small, are greatly appreciated and will help ensure that Waverley survives. Donate online now by visiting our donation page. Alternatively you may be able to purchase items from our Amazon Wish List to help prepare Waverley for passenger service.

If you have already donated check out our Virtual Donor Wall and see you name listed.

2021 Season

Waverley will enter service in June to operate her main summer programme on the Clyde until late August. Please sign up for Waverley’s e-newsletters and receive timetable information as it is released.

In 2021 Waverley will join in celebrations to celebrate Scotland’s Year of Coasts and Waters 20/21. Only aboard Waverley can you steam round Ailsa Craig, cruise the spectacular Kyles of Bute, sail up the peaceful waters of Loch Fyne or take a trip “Doon the Watter” aboard a real steam ship.

In 2021 we will mark the 75th anniversary of Waverley’s launch.
