Knowing the local terrain it may come as no surprise to learn that this is where the bicycle was invented by blacksmith Kirkpatrick MacMillan in 1839. No doubt he wanted a machine that would save his energy as he traversed the nearby hills. The town itself has two picturesque boulevards lined with old lime trees and a column bearing the winged horse emblem of the Queensferry family. Erected in 1714 it was restored in 1955 following a severe storm.
