We were luck to have perfect weather, we bought the combined bus/ boat ticket which was good value. The boat trip was very enjoyable, very scenic. Only criticism would be that iseating was very tightly packed

The River Dee is a great place to spend an hour or so wandering along. From the weir to the Boathouse there is plenty to see and there are river cruises to enjoy too.
