Journey from Central Region near Falkirk and Grangemouth across the river Forth to Fife at Kincardine. There is also the Clackmannan bridge really close to this bridge which takes you towards Alloa.

I regularly drive here and I always feel sad as the bridge no longer opens. However, it is still a busy wee bridge and long may it last!

As far as Kincardine Bridge goes this is something of a gateway. Crossing the bridge will take you over to Cumbernauld and Glasgow. The real reason this is a gateway is this is the entrance to Fife. Anyone who is a coastal walker will find...More

Had a walk across this bridge earlier today with my wife. Have only ever been over in a vehicle before and wanted to have a good look at the scenery which you really can't do from a car! The bridge itself was completed in 1936,...More

Kincardine Bridge is about a mile long - avoid it at rush hour as it can be congested and the fumes are strong! It used to open in the middle (up to the 1970s) but hasn't for some time. It is worth a walk for...More

Kincardine bridge in its day was a miracle of engineering. It was the longest swing bridge of its type in the world. It's a good looking bridge too from the river. It's been neglected, it's due a heavy refurbishment. I understand it's no longer able...More
