With the UNESCO World Heritage-designated Forth Bridge towering overhead and the Forth Road Bridge and Queensferry Crossing a stone’s throw away, there’s no shortage of photo opportunities in North Queensferry.

As well as world-famous engineering marvels spanning three centuries, look out for harbour seals, terns, gannets and occasionally dolphins in the Firth of Forth - and the photogenic houses in North Queensferry’s winding streets.

Perched on the Firth of Forth, for centuries, North Queensferry was a bustling ferry port. Today, North Queensferry’s a peaceful village, although its historic legacy of taking visitors across the Forth continues with boats offering trips exploring the estuary, island hopping and wildlife watching.

Onshore, North Queensferry is best discovered on foot. Start at the world’s smallest working light house at the pier before walking under the Forth Bridge, ideally as a train rumbles along the railway line overhead!

Stop off at Deep Sea World to find out what’s going on under the waves, both in Scotland and further afield. If you’d like to continue walking, follow either the Fife Coastal Path or step out along Fife Pilgrim’s Way, which links Scotland’s holy hotspots of Culross and St Andrews.
