Inverkeithing Things to Do

    Forth Rail Bridge

    by carfan Written Jun 9, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One thing you must do is to cross the Forth Rail Bridge by train.

    You can either catch the train at Dalmeny or Inverkeithing and sit back and enjoy the views from the bridge.Have your camera ready!

    Watch out for Deep Sea World on the Fife side and look upstream to Rosyth and Grangemouth and downstream to see along the Fife coast.

    Forth Road Bridge from South Queensferry

    by carfan Updated Jun 9, 2005

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One of the most famous landmarks in Scotland can be found on Inverkeithing's doorstep.

    The Forth Road Bridge was opened in 1964 by Her Majesty the Queen.It replaced the old but romantic ferry crossing from South queensferry to North Queensferry.

    There has been recent talk about building a new road bridge further upstream as they reckon the present one has about 20 years life left!

    Deep Sea World is a large underwater safari in North Queensferry.It can be reached by either car, bus or train.

    You move around on a moving walkway while sharks and other creatures swim above you.You can clearly see them as Deep Sea World boasts the world'd longest viewing tunnel.

    Loads to see and do.Touch pools, watch the divers feed the sharks,a good cafe, nice shop.

Inverkeithing Transportation

    Inverkeithing lies on the main north/south rail line.Therefore rail links to places like Edinburgh, Perth and Dundee are frequent.Most trains stop at Inverkeithing, including the larger GNER and VIRGIN trains. A day return in to Edinburgh costs about £4 return, and children travel free at weekends.

    Inverkeithing is the home of a new Park and Ride system.You park your car at Ferrytoll for free and a shuttle service of buses takes you in to the centre of Edinburgh.The cost is £4 return and again the children travel free Saturday and Sunday.

    I would highly recommend the use of this system as parking in Edinburgh is a nightmare and expensive!! The journey in to Edinburgh can take up to 1/2 hour depending on traffic, but the bus does use designated bus lanes, so it skips most of the jams that may occur.
