Queensferry, also called South Queensferry or simply “The Ferry”, is a former Royal Burgh in West Lothian now part of the City of Edinburgh, Scotland. It is located some ten miles to the north west of the city centre, on the shore of the Firth of Forth between the Forth Bridge and the Forth Road Bridge. Queensferry is referred to as South Queensferry in order to distinguish it from North Queensferry. The queen referred to is Saint Margaret of Scotland who is believed to have established a ferry at this point for pilgrims on their way north to St Andrews. She died in 1093 and made her final journey by ferry to Dunfermline Abbey. Her son, David I of Scotland, awarded the ferry rights to the abbey. The High Street has an unusual stepped cross section designed to cope with the town’s steeply sloping site above the shore. this has led to elevated pavements on the inland side, adding to the towns unique atmosphere.
