Paddle Down the Clyde the Waverley Way
The Firth of Clyde is an area of outstanding scenic beauty with a rich history. The Waverley Paddle Steamer carries on this tradition as she continues to sail “doon the watter” calling at many of the old steamer piers. As the world’s last sea-going paddle steamer, Waverley herself is a working example of this heritage.
Waverley’s passengers can now better appreciate the Clyde thanks to a new guidebook “Paddle down the Clyde the Waverley way” which is now available from the ship’s shop thanks to an initiative by the PSPS Scottish Branch who produced the guide.
The guide’s 44 pages has information about the ship, the history of the Clyde and its towns. It complements the on-board commentary by showing key features that can be seen from the ship using eight guide maps which cover all Waverley’s Clyde routes.
The guidebook is available for £5.95 from the ship’s shop. For those who are unable to get to the ship, or who would like to purchase the guidebook in advance of their sail, it can be purchased on line from Waverley Excursions.
