The 'Ferry Inn' stood to the north of Alloa ferry pier which, until the Kincardine Bridge opened in 1936, was the quickest way to cross the River Forth to South Alloa; paddle steamers also used the pier to transport people up and down the river. Alloa Glass Works, founded c.1767 and still operating today as O-I Manufacturing UK Ltd, lay immediately to the west, but has long since expanded eastwards, taking in the area where the inn stood and many other buildings besides.
