Forth Hovercraft service?

Hmmm. Plans for a possible hovercraft service along the Forth between Alloa and Kirkcaldy are being developed, with talk of it possibly being extended to Stirling.

In the right conditions it could drop Shard off at his front door.

Nah, them things only run when it's calm. SRN1, Wallasey to Rhyl in the 60's hardly ever managed to maintain a scheduled service!

Given that the railway from Stirling through Alloa to Longannet has just about been reinstated (over time & budget), I would have thought a train would have made more sense.
