Moored in front of the Ocean Terminal is Scotland’s shining star of the sea and one of its biggest tourist attractions, the former Royal Yacht Britannia. The grand and imposing ship was once the home to the royal family during their overseas travels, until it was decommissioned in 1997. The design of the interior is characteristic of the 1950’s and the décor is a direct reflection of Her Majesty’s simple and modest taste. Take the audio guide tour for an intriguing insight into the private life of the royal family aboard the Britannia.
