St Margaret's Hope

A sheltered anchorage to the west of North Queensferry on the Fife coast of the Firth of Forth. It is said that St. Margaret landed here when she first came to Scotland in the 11th Century. The bay forms a natural deep-water harbour within which the Rosyth dockyard and naval base was developed from 1909.
