Some believe the weekly Fair started around 1068, in the time of King Malcolm III and his Queen, Margaret (whose visits to Dunfermline Abbey via ferry boat, gave ‘Queensferry’ its name). It was a civic duty to walk the boundaries of Queensferry, which were fiercely guarded. In the course of time it became a social duty to celebrate the day with feasting and dancing and so the Ferry Fair was born.
