YOU are guaranteed a great summer day out on the Waverley — the world’s last seagoing paddle steamer — and we have two pairs of tickets, worth over £50, for a trip on board.

This will give you the chance to recapture happy memories or create new ones, leaving from Glasgow Science Centre quayside and cruising ‘doon the watter’.

The paddle steamer was built almost 70 years ago and in 1975, at the end of her working life, she was saved for the nation by Waverley Steam Navigation.

She then began a second career as one of the country’s best-loved tourist attractions.

Since she has been in operational preservation she has been awarded four stars by Visit Scotland, an engineering heritage award, and has carried over five million passengers from over 70 ports around the UK.

Waverley is a unique piece of Britain’s maritime history, bringing pleasure to tens of thousands every summer. She has been magnificently restored with towering funnels, timber decks and gleaming varnish.

The Clyde sailing season runs from June 15 to August 25 and all prize winners need to use their free tickets between this period.

A relaxing trip on the Waverley is a real treat, just watching the Clyde coast gently slip by.

There is the chance to read complimentary newspapers with coffee, enjoy a sumptuous Sunday roast with the best views in the world, enjoy real ale or sample one of the 50 malts, all while cruising in comfort.

For your chance to win tickets, make sure you get your copy of this week’s Milngavie and Bearsden Herald.
