OMG! Thanks so VERY much for posting this pic! I hope I a right- that is East terrace, isn't it? In the 70's we lived in South Queensferry for a year at 12 East terrace- i think the house was called St. Helens. It was a 3 story huse so I think ti is one of the houses past where the people are walking. the dark building at the very end I think was a grocery store called Drysdales. I miss those days. Any chane of getting a face on picture of the house at 12 East Terrace?

There was a fish and chips shop directly underneath the house- we could get to it by taking the basement stairs and coming out underneath the terrace at the street level. What a great blast from the past! Thanks again!

Hi, nice that you got your memories back :)

That sounds like you loved the time you had there. We visited during our trip to Edinburgh and the reason was that we stood in north QF the year before.

The viewpoint i have is in front of a small Coffe Shop which served very tasty cakes and more. But i took a closer look at MS-Bing and i see that the East Terrace is about 20m more ... east. My point is in High Street.

Maybe you can see it here

cheers - Michael

A successful sea merchant built Black Castle in 1626. This is the oldest house in the Royal Burgh.
