fairly obvious reasons, South Queensferry could do with a little, additional patronage over the coming few weeks - here are some reasons to go:
"Edinburgh is a truly magical at this time of year, but sometimes it’s nice to escape the hustle and bustle for a while to enjoy a slightly slower pace and the stunning scenery of Edinburgh’s outer lying areas. South Queensferry, located on the southern shore of the Firth of Forth is just a hop, skip and a jump from the capital, offering a great option to escape the city for an afternoon of fun with the family or friends.
Equally, for those people living in Fife, the ‘Festive Ferry’ has loads to offer and provides a closer alternative to get some Christmas shopping done or a chance to enjoy a festive tipple or two without travelling into the city. And, despite the closure of the Forth Road Bridge, it’s still very accessible, with ScotRail services running regularly from Inverkeithing.
Whether it’s a relaxing day of shopping in South Queensferry’s independent shops and boutiques, ranging from jewellers to kiltmakers and chocolatiers; a leisurely stroll, catching some fresh air on coastal walk through Dalmeny Estate to Cramond Beach; or a lunch and cocktails with friends at a restaurant and bar with a riverside view, there is something for all discerning tastes."
