Discover Scotland: Photo Walk in South Queensferry

Scotland

South Queensferry is a town to the west of Edinburgh, Scotland, located on the shore of the Firth of Forth between the Forth Bridge, Forth Road Bridge and the Queensferry Crossing.




Five interesting facts about the town:

  • It derives its name from the ferry service established by Queen Margaret (1045–1093) in the 11th century.
  • In 2015, UNESCO inscribed the Forth Bridge, built in the 1800s to transport rail passengers across the Forth Estuary, as the sixth World Heritage site in Scotland.
  • The Forth Road Bridge, built in 1958–1964, was the fourth longest in the world and the longest outside the United States when it opened.
  • The oldest building in the town is the church of St. Mary, which dates from 1441.
  • Each year on the second Friday in August the streets of South Queensfery play host to a mysterious figure, the Burry Man.
