The Kirkintilloch branch of the Seagull Trust was opened in 1983.Originally based near the Townhead Bridge we now sail from our new centre at Southbank Marina.
The Highland Branch of Seagull Trust Cruises is based in Inverness but unlike the Trust’s other Branches, it has no office or base to work from and it relies on the goodwill and generosity of its supporters to supply the required facilities to allow it to operate. The Branch is extremely fortunate that it continues to enjoy such a depth of community recognition and support.
The Ratho Branch is the original branch of the Seagull Trust and it was here that the first cruise for disabled people took place in 1979. Ratho Branch is located beside the Union Canal, just west of Edinburgh, and located near to the Bridge Inn.
The Branch Centre was designed and built to incorporate all of the Seagull Trusts needs and it was opened in 1992. It has a lounge for guests and two spacious toilets equipped for people with special needs. The Centre is on two levels - on the car park level there is an entrance foyer, a furnished lounge with full height windows overlooking the dockside where guests can relax before boarding one of the Seagull boats, and a fully equipped kitchen.
