Forth Bridges

Hello Fellow Gallopers,

The Forth Bridges (both road and rail) can easily be described as an internationally recognised Scottish Landmark. They form a major arterial connection between the North-east and South-east of the country. I personally feel that they would also be one of the most photographed structures in Edinburgh and Fife.

The Forth Road bridge, as can be seen above, is a suspension bridge that was opened in 1964 and spans the Firth of Forth connecting Scotland’s capital city Edinburgh to Fife. The bridge was built to replace a ferry service that used to operate across the Forth.

The Forth Rail bridge, above, is a cantilever railway bridge across the Forth to the east of the Forth Road bridge.

Till next time, take care and gallop free.
