The Forth Bridge is one of the most fascinating man-made benchmarks in Scotland.


The bridge, an engineering marvel, is so old that it celebrated its centenary in the year of 1990. You can have a splendid view of this age-old international symbol of Scotland which stands 20km to the west of Edinburgh. A train from Waverley to Dalmeny and then a walk of 1 km can also take you to the place. South Queensferry being very crowded,(though it has good hotels from where you can enjoy the view) a better view is guaranteed from the northern side. The bridge,more popularly known as Forth Rail Bridge or Forth Railway Bridge connects the capital of Scotland, Edinburgh with Fife and crosses the River Forth (hence the name). Famed as the world's first major steel bridge,this massive cantilever structure remains in regular use to date.
