Although only a few minutes away from Edinburgh, Queensferry is a world away from the busy city bustle.

Perhaps you’d be interested in visiting Hopetoun House? Enjoy the expansive grounds of this stately manor, and you might even spot a deer if you’re lucky.

Ask your host about South Queensferry’s namesake over a pint in the local pub and learn a little more about Scottish customs and culture. You’re in for a braw day out!
