The harbour was constructed in 1878-18. It was influenced by Robert Stevenson (designer of the Bell Rock Lighthouse) who made recommendations during a visit in 1815.
The harbour was the centre of the town’s commercial life for many years. In its early years, it served as a port for trade with Europe and Scandinavia and had some connections with the whaling industry. In later years it was essential to the import and export of materials to support the distilling and soap-making industries.
Nowadays, the harbour is an oasis of calm, bordered by urban beaches and lapping water. Sometimes you can spot jellyfish and seals.
There are lots of benches dotted around where you can sit and spot wild rabbits, watch the boats, admire panoramic views of the bridges and experience the noise when a train crosses!
The harbour is now home to the Queensferry Boat Club.
