St Margaret’s Catholic Church South Queensferry

Hope View, Loch Road, South Queensferry, EH30 9LS

St Margaret’s Catholic Church has held a prominent position in South Queensferry for the past 135 years with the present church having been built in the 1930s to replace a Victorian corrugated iron structure.

The church serves the local communities of Queensferry, Dalmeny and Kirkliston and in the past has provided spiritual and pastoral care for transient and itinerant workers as well as the local population. It has welcomed shale workers, those building the Forth Bridges, navy personnel during times of both war and peace and, in more recent years, international guests from the cruise ships.

A major and beautiful feature of St Margaret’s is its Barnett & Sons stained glass windows, featuring St Margaret, St Elizabeth and St Andrew.

Should you accept our invitation to visit, you will have the opportunity to become aware of the history of the church within Queensferry itself and its role and contribution over the past century.

The tour of the church will allow you to observe and witness the distinct structure and features specific to a Catholic church.
Our guides will be available to answer questions on the historical and spiritual aspects of the church.
