Looking West along the cobbled High Street in South Queensferry, Scotland from the elevated East Terrace walkway. The Terrace contains a number of listed buildings.

Formerly in the county of West Lothian, South Queensferry lies 10 miles (16 km) west of Edinburgh. It has been an important crossing at least since 1071 when Malcolm III granted free passage at the ‘Queens Ferry’ for pilgrims on their way to St Andrews. A ferry service operated until 1964, the year the Forth Road Bridge was opened.

South Queensferry was created a Burgh of Regality in the 13th century and made a Royal Burgh in 1636. It traded actively with Europe in the 17th century.

Today, South Queensferry is a dormitory settlement for Edinburgh.
