Hawes Pier
Hawes Pier
This pier is situated at the eastern end of the seafront at South Queensferry, immediately west of the Forth Rail Bridge. The design is that of a sloping slipway rather than a normal pier so it can be used at all states of the tide.

Built in 1812, the Hawes Pier was used as the Southern terminus of the vehicular ferry across the Queensferry Narrows until 1964 when the nearby Forth Road Bridge was opened. Apart from use by recreational sailing vessels and motor cruisers, it now houses the local Inshore Rescue Boat station.
