Three excellent bridges close to the harbour and a pretty small town. Good fish and chip shop takeaway in town. The view by the harbour is amazing.

A jumble of historic buildings, pubs and eateries,crying out to reopen again, nestling adjacent to these wonders of tbe modern world. Many great spots to view the Bridges and watch tbe trains trundle slowly over to the Kingdom of Fife.
A great place to spend a very rewarding day.

This beautiful tiny village has an incredible atmosphere! Not surprisingly quite crowded, but we catched a good time and had a nice afternoon here!

Lovely Place

South Queensferry probably would not have existed were it not for the Firth of Forth and the need for people to get across.

I arrived by train and it's about a 15 minute walk from Dalmeny station to the waterfront. There are also buses running to the city centre. I believe it's route 43.

The town has lots of lovely old buildings and there is a harbour too. It is very pleasant to walk along the front and enjoy the scenery. Even though you are reminded of how technology has evolved over the ages by the 3 different bridges which are never out of view.

A lovely wee town.
Sep 2020
Obviously the main attraction in South Queensferry is the view of the iconic "three bridges", but this little town is worth a visit in its own right.

As well as the waterfront walks, the little high street with its collection of pastel-coloured houses and shops is a delight. There is a good selection of independent shops and cafes and a couple of decent old pubs as well.

Well worth a visit.

Picturesque Town
Jan 2020 • Family
South Queensferry known for its iconic Firth of Forth Bridge, this seaside town connects Edinburgh to the Kingdom of Fife.

The main street of Town has a row of colorful terraced houses. Picturesque village on the edge of the Fifth of Forth. It is also the place where you find lovely shops and best fish and chips in Scotland.

Pretty South Queensferry sits on the shore in the shadow of Forth Bridges.

Fantastic views
Sep 2018
We stopped by here for a short time while on tour around Edinburgh and Scotland. This was one of the highlights of our time around Scotland. The views from here are absolutely magnificent. The area is a lovely spot to visit with a few shops and great people. Worth stopping by for a bit.

If in edinburgh take a trip out to this wee village. Fabulous view of the bridges across the Firth and a stroll down the mainstreet is like stepping back in time..... Beautifully maintained old buildings and cobbled streets lend it an air of bygone times and there are plenty of spots to have a coffee or a bite to eat.

Picturesque Town
Jun 2019 • Friends
Queensferry Crossing is the newest of the three bridges across the Firth of Forth. The bridge is 1.6 miles long and a whopping 689 feet high. I took these photos as our cruise ship sailed into port. Quite an impressive accomplishment. The town looked quite quaint as he drove through on our way to Edinburgh. Unfortunately, the town is often bypassed by cruise passengers who have their sights on other points of interest. Also, you can get great views of the Forth Bridges. I read this town is the one mentioned in Robert Louis Stevenson’s Kidnapped.
