Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines’ 804-guest ship Black Watch is due to commence her cruise season from Rosyth, for Edinburgh, Scotland on August 14 with a seven-night ‘Lochs of Scotland’ sailing.

In total, the line will be offering eight cruises from Edinburgh (Rosyth) on Black Watch this year, until October 14 – an increase of one turnaround call since 2016.

Guests are offered a variety of itineraries from Edinburgh (Rosyth) this year, including a seven-night ‘Scenic Fjords of Norway’ cruise, a ten-night ‘Cultural Cities of Northern Europe’ sailing, and a 16-night ‘Landscapes of Portugal & the Canaries’ sunshine getaway.

The company has also included two river cruises – ‘German Waterways’ and ‘French Rivers’ in its portfolio this year, both of which are itineraries that have not been offered from the Scottish port before.

Clare Ward, the line's director of product and customer services, said: “Black Watch’s forthcoming cruise season from Rosyth builds upon our already-close relationship with this convenient, regional Scottish port.

“The port is quite unlike anywhere else that we visit in the world, boasting spectacular scenery and three iconic bridges, and Black Watch’s guests will be amongst the first to sail under the new Queensferry Bridge, which will be opened officially by Her Majesty The Queen this September.”

Black Watch has benefitted from an extensive multi-million Pound refurbishment, and now offers guests improved facilities on board, including a new informal dining area, Brigadoon, and the creation of a new speciality dining restaurant, The Black Watch Room, as well as an upgraded Glentanar main restaurant and new 3D-enabled Marina Theatre.
