About this product
- DescriptionInverkeithing was created a royal burgh in the twelfth century owing to its importance as a port and its strategic position on the King's Highway linking rth and south. This strategic position owed much to its proximity to its wee neighbour of North Queensferry at the rthern end of the Queensferry Passage. From the time of Queen Margaret the Queensferry Passage, w replaced by rail and road bridges, has been a vital artery of traffic.Inverkeithing, w bereft of other former industries of paper-making, pottery manufacture and ship-building is w largely a residential town. But it retains at its core, its medieval plan and many of the features of a historic Scottish burgh. These include a traditional Scottish tolbooth, a fine auld mercat cross and the essential wide central square. North Queensferry is home to a popular sea life centre, appropriately housed in an old quarry.
