The Basics

Besides chain fashion outlets, you’ll find a few local shops selling Scottish handcrafts that make good souvenirs. The spacious Ocean Terminal also includes a spa, gym, indoor playground, and 12-screen movie theater. The main draw for many visitors is the Royal Yacht Britannia, which was the queen’s floating palace for more than 40 years.

To save time at the entrance to the Royal Yacht Britannia, buy your ticket online in advance, and explore Britannia’s five decks with the complimentary audio guide. Highlights include the State Apartments, the Royal Bedrooms, and the gleaming Engine Room.
