Edinburgh - a week in pictures (Tuesday)

On my second day we decided to head out of the city to lovely Queensferry, so named because it was the site of a ferry crossing across the Firth of Forth. There is still a ferry crossing somewhere in the area but these days most cross the Forth via the railway or road bridges.

We had a walk down to the beach

And then went for a walk on a footpath beside the coast

We had a rest at this little secluded beach, then headed back the way we came

The railway bridge going across the Forth


  1. Nice shots, especially the one with abandoned pier in the middle of the water! :)

  2. Apparently it's part of a rail track that used to go far out on the water, possibly to get goods to large sailing vessels that couldn't come close to shore. It looked really lonely and strange!
