The Forth Bridges – Rail & Road
To the north of the Edinburgh is the Firth of Forth where the River Forth flows out into the North Sea. The Forth Bridge is probably the finest man-made structure in Scotland. It is a rail bridge and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Construction was completed in 1890 – it is an amazing and iconic structure. The rail bridge sits side by side with the Forth Road Bridge and the recently added Queensferry Crossing bridge, each an icon of design and engineering for their respective times. The pleasant town of Queensferry lies at the southern feet of the bridges and offers an alternative smaller and more personal base for exploring the area. Search for accommodation at Booking.com.
