'Mary Queen of Scots'


Thank you to Graham Ferguson, now living in Saudi Arabia,  for sending the photograph above.  The photo would have been taken about a couple of years before the Forth Road Bridge opened and the ferry stopped operating.

"I am working abroad so I browse your site more often now.  It makes me homesick.

Here is a photograph of what I think is the ‘Mary Queen of Scots’ ferry.  I took this photo when I was on a school trip with Peffermill Primary about 1962, when I was aged 11.
