Long Old School Bridge
Aug 2020
This bridge is a major crossing point on the Forth, and was the innermost of the Forth bridges until the adjacent Clackmannanshire Bridge was built. It’s hard to believe that until this bridge was built, there was no other road crossing over the Forth downstream of Stirling and now we have four. Kincardine was also the largest swing bridge in Europe when it was built, as well as Scotland’s longest road bridge. The decline of industry means that the former feature is no longer needed, and the more important crossings downstream took away the latter record.

Still it’s nice to use this bridge. Even for a bridge built in the 1930, it looks like a fine feat of engineering. Plus, we don’t often see old school bridge designs like this anymore.

Interesting old bridge

Not just another piece of engineering, it does have a very specific time period feel to it, with it's name across the big entrance feature. But at the end of the day, it is just a bridge.

Awesome for a ten year old
Nov 2018
Back in the 70's when l was at school we done a school project about the forth,forth road bridge,and kincardine bridge.And l have to say the latter was the best,we got to go up to the control room, after a terrifying climb up the ladders overhanging the the river forth we entered the control room,the controller opened the bridge to let us see how it works, impressive to say the least,also he told us the windows in the control room move back and forth because if they didn't they may smash in severe weather.PS l went in the 70's but TripAdvisor doesn't allow me to put in the date for when l travelled so I'll put in 2018 but it was round about early 70's

Not on the same scale as the Queensferry Crossings, but impressive nonetheless, this bridge sits over the Forth River and has been in place since the early twentieth century. There isn’t a great deal to see or deal in Kincardine itself but the bridge’s purpose is more or less to assist the flow of commuter traffic travelling to Edinburgh.

Always have a soft spot for Kincardine as used to attend Scottish Police College at Tulliallan. Still get a flutter in my stomach driving across it as I did all those years ago.
Built in 1936 and still very impressive. Great view from it to the Clackmannan bridge too.

Our gateway to the Kingdom of Fife

We really like travelling over this handsome old bridge. As you Cross it from east to west the start of the Fife coastal pathway becomes evident......look for a splendid metal archway. The bridge now has been replaced by a brand new faster bridge with double carriageways which links us to the Kingdom of Fife.

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.
