The bridge is truly amazing and if BIG presses your button then you will want to see this iconic structure. Our vantage point was South Queensferry waterfront. Compared to the nearby road bridges it appears massively over engineered. Look carefully and the large elements are...More

Many people (technical and non technical) will lose their word when they first see this amazing bridge. It's an UNESCO world heritage for good reason and it justifies the status in full. From engineering point of view, the bridge is a classic with its giantic...More

recommend visiting the bridge as it is truly breath taking. A good viewing point for it is in South Queensferry.

This bridge now has UNESCO world heritage status and it is very obvious why - with the stunning design and magnificent engineering that built it. It looks stunning now with its modern protective coating but retains the iron oxide colour. You would also think it...More

The Forth Bridge (not the Forth Rail Bridge) is an iconic Scottish landmark. Best viewed from South Queensferry and easily accessible from Dalmeny station. It used to be painted all year round but it has been coated with a long life covering similar to that...More

Extraordinary in every way: it combines being a marvel of engineering with an astonishing beauty. A tribute to the skill and design capabilities of the Victorians. It still stands while the 20th Century Road Bridge slowly rusts away.

Okay,it is a bridge. BUT what a bridge. Get under it to take in the sheer scale of it. wait for a train to go over before you take your photograph so you can look back and remember how tiny you are.

It might be only a bridge, but it's a beauty and full of historical significance. As it's a railway bridge one cannot get into it unless you buy a train ticket but she is best appreciated from the shores from the many view points.

Hello Martin. You need to get a train from either Waverley or Haymarket station (both are in Edinburgh) with the direction Dundee or Glenrothes. The latter option may be flagged as a 'Fife Circle' train. Just be careful to... More
