Dalmeny, Scotland

A couple of weekends ago we drove to South Queensferry again, well it was a lovely bright day, as you can see and we didn’t fancy going around shops, a country walk was what we wanted, and that’s what we got.

Dalmeny is a wee village just 1 mile uphill from South Queensferry, but we had never actually been there before. We’d often passed through Dalmeny station on the train though as it’s on the line between Edinburgh and Fife.

I took this photo on the road half-way up to the village, and looking back down towards Queensferry. You get a really weird view of the Forth Bridge from there, it looks absolutely massive, well it is massive I suppose but it looks even bigger when viewed behind the house on the roadside. Can you see it looming behind the trees? Click to enlarge the photo if you need to.

Dalmeny Road

Tomorrow we’ll reach Dalmeny itself, it’s teeny, quiet, but interesting.

    • Joan,
      The house is a bit too close to the road for my liking but it does have a nice view across to fields. It’s amazing to think that you are just about 10 miles from the centre of Edinburgh – it’s so rural.
