Leave historic Linlithgow behind and walk towards the coast through countryside, pass through Bo'ness, before arriving in South Queensferry below the imposing Forth Road Bridge.
Head towards the coast as you leave Linlithgow and stroll through rural countryside. Follow in the foosteps of fishermen’s wives who hauled their catches along the Fisherrow. Bo’ness is a lovely historic town where you’ll find 16th century architecture, a steam railway and Scotland’s largest railway museum. Continue along the coast to Blackness Castle, a 15th century icon now maintained by Historic Scotland. 17th Century Hopetoun House Estate is the ideal spot to take afternoon tea and rest your legs.
Reach the southern end of the Forth’s road and rail bridges at South Queensferry. Here you can relax with views over the harbour and pick a fine restaurant to sample the freshest fish from Scotland’s waters.
