What you’ll do

Catch a train with one of our friendly Edinburgh hosts and push off to South Queensferry for an idyllic day in this picturesque little fishing village.

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

You’ll amble through the tiny town (situated on the narrowest part of the Firth of Forth) and enjoy views over the harbor, as well as discover the iconic Forth Rail Bridge, Hawes Pier and a charming cobbled high street that’s full of quirky independent shops to browse.

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!
