Ferry Road etc
The street now known as Ferry Road was referred to in various ways in the past, old maps showing ‘Road from Queensferry’, ‘Queensferry Road’ and so on, but it seems to have been described as Ferry Road by the middle of the nineteenth century. For most of its length it forms part of the A902, with a section at the west (Davidson’s Mains) end being part of the B9085.
Although the whole route is known as Ferry Road, sections also have ‘side names’, or had these in the past.
This page focuses on Ferry Road itself and streets to the north of it between Craighall Road and Davidson’s Mains – other streets are outside the area this website aims to cover.
Buildings on Ferry Road include St Serf’s Church, Inverleith Parish Church, Oaklands School and Holy Cross Primary School. Also formerly on Ferry Road were the Northern General Hospital (now the site of Morrison’s supermarket) and Holy Cross Academy.
