Queensferry-South Queensferry

Queensferry is unofficially known as South Queensferry simply to distinguish it from the other Queensferry on the north side of the Firth of Forth.
Its name commemorates the many ferry crossings made by Queen Margaret from Edinburgh Castle to her palace at Dunfermline in the 11th century. The ferry service continued even after the Forth Rail Bridge opened to the east of the town in 1890.

High Street: Georgian and Victorian houses; Tollbooth Tower, which dates from the 12th century.
At No 53 is a museum.
