From Our Editors

One of the oldest ship's in the world, the ex-navy HM Frigate Unicorn is Scotland’s only preserved warship, and now allows inquisitive visitors to explore its interior. Families can head down to the ship’s mooring in Victoria Dock, where the ship is split into four levels consisting of the upper deck, gun deck, lower deck, and orlop and hold. The upper deck, from where the ship was commanded features carronades, the gun deck has a 46 18-pounder cannon, which the bulk of the 300-strong crew helped man the guns. Each floor is abrim with the Unicorn’s fascinating history, and guests may learn about everything from its construction to its part in The Golden Age of Sail.

Trailed my grown up girls and teenage boys to this at the weekend and they absolutely loved it. Great fun and mind boggling at the same time.

The lovely lad who greeted us was so friendly and knowledgeable. He obviously enjoys his job and it really shows. The boat is just so wonderful and it's all very interesting! Love the selfie seat! Thank you so much for having us!

Very interested and informative. Great that local kids star in the video. Everything well displayed and explained. Grandchildren loved the dressing up treasure chest. Just a thought but maybe the competition entries should be displayed at reception instead of on floor below as we had explored far end first then went downstairs and back up to the other part of the ship before spotting them. The kids were very intent on spotting everything and the treat on handing them in was MUCH APPRECIATED.
