This village in Scotland takes its name from the wife of King Malcolm III of Scotland, Saint Margaret of Scotland. Although there was probably a settlement in the area long before her time, she supposedly established a village in the spot where North Queensferry stands today, in order to make sure that pilgrims would have a regular ferry service to take them to and from Dunfermline and Edinburgh. The crossing was known as Queen’s Ferry, and so the village took on that name. When the Forth Road Bridge was opened in 1964 ferries stopped plying the waters, although they had done so for more than 800 years.

Accidents in UK waters
If you have an accident on a ferry boat or any other boat while in British waters, then you may be able to make a personal injury compensation claim if you can prove that it was caused either by a member of the crew or by the boat’s owner.
If you are hit on the head by an object falling from an overhead rack, for example, this might be an example of negligence as it should have been stowed away securely. If you slip and fall, it could be that the owner of the boat has failed in their duty to replace worn anti-slip coating on decks, or because a broken handrail was not replaced. Both are examples of negligence on the part of the owner.
