View across the Firth of Forth in Scotland by J. Farrington. The Forth is located on the east coast of Scotland and at approximately 55 miles in length and 19 miles in width is the largest estuary in Scotland. Queensferry lies at the tip of a promontory extending into the Forth- at this point the Forth narrows considerably and it became the natural crossing point. Hopeton House is a large mansion house built by the 1st Earl of Hopeton, Charles Hope in 1699, it can be seen, drawn roughly to the left of this print.
