See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

This pub sits on the River Forth with views of the three bridges spanning the river. The Ship Inn today is a family run business which prides itself in providing a warm relaxed atmosphere. Located on the way out of Limekilns, In its early days Limekilns was mainly a fishing village, as well as the main terminus for the ferry linking Bo’ness to Fife. This is echoed in Robert Louis Stevenson’s novel ‘Kidnapped’ where David Balfour and Alan Breck were carried across the Forth after an alleged tipple at The Ship.
