  • The old road bridge over the Forth dates back to 1964. It is a very large suspension bridge - 2.5 km long, central span 1 km -. It became a major transit route in the years 1980-90, and supported traffic twice as much as it was designed for. Hence the great obligation to close it for multiple maintenance. Hence the need to build a replacement bridge. This is the Queensferry Bridge, a beautiful 2.7 km long cable-stayed bridge. To best admire them, head to South Queensferry harbour, an adorable little marina (postcode: EH30 9PS). Don't hesitate to park as close as possible to the pier (see Google streets). Because, from there, to the right, you have a magnificent view of the railway bridge.

  • The railway bridge over the Firth of Forth linking Edinburgh and the Fife area. The design is more than 2.5 km long and is made of steel. The bridge was built for 7 years. Interestingly, the construction of the Forth Bridge required 10 times more metal than the Eiffel Tower. It's a good thing to admire)))))) And in general it is an example of the evolution of The Architectural Style of Scotland!
