Removed from the cacophony of Edinburgh’s crowd, Queensferry opens the portal to an alternate dimension that is full of kitschy boutiques, scenic walks to the shore and a history that speaks through the cracks of some of its oldest establishments. You won’t have any difficulty finding the best budget hotels that provide a stunning view of the coastline.
North Queensferry Harbour Light Tower- This tiny piece of Scotland’s maritime history makes it to the top of the list of non-mainstream tourist attractions. It has been designated the status of the world’s smallest working lighthouse. It was brought back to life after being defunct for almost 120 years.
Priory Church- It is a 15th-century medieval Carmelite Church. Like the light-tower, it fell into obscurity but was restored in the late 18th-century. It is the only functional Carmelite congregational place of worship in the British Isles.
Queensferry Museum- It is home to local artefacts that reveal the traditions of the town. Visitors not only get a comprehensive look at the culture of Queensferry but unfiltered views of the Forth Bridge as well.
Livingston is almost 14 miles from Queensferry. Woodland walks and the picture-perfect scenery of the countryside make this town worth visiting. If you want a little solitude after ticking everything off your checklist in Queensferry, you can opt for a rejuvenating weekend in Livingston.
Kinghorn is another quirky option for a weekend trip from Queensferry. It is a seaside-resort, so hotels near the coastline are preferred. If you are compelled to seek out hotels for long term stay, you will not regret your decision.
