South Queensferry

Queensferry (often referred to as South Queensferry to distinguish it from North Queensferry), originally a Royal Burgh in West Lothian, is 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, approximately 8 miles (13 km) from Edinburgh Airport. The town’s population is around 12,000 people. The older Scottish Gaelic name is Cas Chaolas meaning “Steep Sided Strait”, but a translation of the English is now more frequently used. for more click here
