Northern end of the famous Forth Railway Bridge.

The name is believed to originate from the fact that Queen Margaret, (later Saint Margaret) and her husband King Malcolm Canmore regularly crossed the Forth when travelling between Edinburgh and their home in Dunfermline.

Until 1964 when the road bridge opened, this was also the the northern end of the Car Ferry linking with South Queensferry. The harbour is now used for leisure craft and the small boat ferries to the islands in the Forth.

The Forth Bridges Visitor Centre Trust is at the foot of the Rail Bridge at the North Queensferry end.  For anyone interested in either of these magnificent monuments to human skill and engineering, this is well worth a visit.

And if you want to see the wonders of the world beneath the waves, then you should visit Deep Sea World at the award-winning National Aquarium of Scotland. The longest underwater tunnel in the world will convey you through Scotland's million gallon indoor ocean. Just inches away from possibly the biggest sharks you'll ever see, you glide along the moving safari watching divers feed the world's largest collection of sharks and temperate fish. And now, if you are brave enough, you can even dive with the sharks!!!
