The company behind the iconic Waverley paddle steamer has taken home a top award.

Waverley Excursions was hailed as the Best Visitor Attraction Experience in the Best of Scotland’s Readers’ Choice Awards.

The iconic vessel will be back in Scotland next month to end its 2023 season, with its final sailing on October 15.

The Waverley is a regular visitor along the Clyde coast throughout the summer, with sailings around the Firth of Clyde and further afield.
