South Queensferry

South Queensferry was quiet, almost tranquil. The main road that cuts through Queensferry lacked its usual busyness. Closed due to roadworks. No traffic, no cars, no crowds. Occassionally, a train rumbled slowly over the rail bridge. Vibes: very much off season.

Forth Rail Bridge in South Queensferry

Forth Bridge in South Queensferry, just outside Edinburgh, on a typically grey Scottish day 🌧

The perfect setting for a simple, pleasant walk through drizzle and persistent wind. And everything you want to do before rewarding yourself with hot coffee, bagels and mountains of poutine at Down the Hatch, an authentic Canadian diner πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦ in an authentic Scottish industrial estate.
