If you're heading up to Fife, you'll be crossing the Firth of Forth, and one of the bridges. This one no longer allows passenger cars, I believe it's only for trucks and busses. But you can get a great view of it from anywhere along...More

Travelled out of Edinburgh on the train, over the Forth Rail Bridge to North Queensferry and then walked back across the old road bridge. It was a lovely sunny afternoon and, although cold and breezy out over the Forth, it was well worth doing. The...More

Plan to spend a little time at this location, to view and marvel at the bridges. The oldest is a red railway bridge, greatly over-engineered. The second is the vehicular roadway constructed many years ago to connect both sides of the Forth River banks, and...More

Actually there are 3 bridges side by side. The oldest is iron and requires painting like the Golden Gate. They are very impressive from a distance.

It is very interesting to compare the three bridges as you cross as they are of very different construction, but all stunning in their own way. Take some time out as you cross to marvel at this piece of engineering history.

This bridge is testament to amazing 60's technology and design. Walk or cycle across and enjoy the view to the east (the finest bridge, ever, anywhere!!) or the west (the fab new Q'ferry Crossing) and at the north side walk down to the harbour for...More

We set off to walk about 1/2 way across the bridge, but ended up walking over to Fife on the west side, and coming back on the east side. So we got great views of the Queensferry crossing on the way out, and the rail...More
