Friday photo: Forth Road Bridge

There are three bridges across the Firth of Forth on the east coast of Scotland, linking Edinburgh to the south with Fife to the north. Of these three, one (the iconic red Forth Rail Bridge, opened in 1890) is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and another (the bright white Queensferry Crossing, opened in 2017) is the world’s longest three-tower cable-stayed bridge. Sitting between these two impressive structures is the Forth Road Bridge, opened in 1964. It may not be as striking as either of its more visually stimulating neighbours, but the Forth Road Bridge has its own graceful greyness.

  1. It is still impressive, Lorna. I remember being awestruck when we first drove across it! And the views of the rail bridge made it even more exciting. I’ve often wondered what they intend to do with it, now that the third bridge is open.
