Friday photo: 3 bridges, 3 centuries

The three bridges in this photograph span the Firth of Forth between Edinburgh and Fife. To the left, the white triangular-shaped bridge is the Queensferry Crossing (opened in 2017); next to it, the grey bridge with its sweeping dark span is the Forth Road Bridge (opened in 1964); on the right, the second largest cantilever bridge in the world is the iconic red-painted Forth Rail Bridge (opened in 1890).

Three centuries of bridges over the Firth of Forth, as viewed from South Queensferry.

  1. Nice pic, Lorna……. what a history and how nice that you and the assistants were there to experience and participate in some of it. There was an article about the new bridge in the last edition of Scotland Magazine.
