Scope and Content Lighthouse, ferry pier, South Queensferry, West Lothian The use of the narrows at this point as a ferry crossing is linked to Queen Margaret of Scotland, wife of Malcolm Canmore, who used the route to reach Dunfermline. This ferry pier was built by John Rennie in about 1812. This view shows the lighthouse on the ferry pier. This is hexagonal, with unusual rustication of the masonry. The large-paned lantern is a relatively recent alteration. The building is unfortunately now hemmed in by modern buildings. The pier is now used for recreational purposes by private boaters, and by pleasure sailings to Inchcolm, and to the Sea Life Centre at North Queensferry. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
