Reviewed August 27, 2013

Great place to stay before taking plane from Edinburgh. It was awhere to see the capital from a different angle.

“Unique Victoriana”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

This iconic rail bridge across the Forth estuary has got to be on your European bucket list. Get a good view from either side of the river but if staying in Edinburgh head for South Queensferry, there is a car park on the riverbank. Also good for the adjacent Forth Road bridge, a suspension design similar to the Golden Gate in San Francisco CA. Also worth a look is the ongoing work for the brand new bridge currently being built downstream of the existing road bridge.

“Great for bike ride!”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

We've lived beside it for years and eventually walked across it and then cycled across it. Lots to see and lots of fresh air!

“The Forth Bridge”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

A fantastic piece of world famous 19th century civil engineering - the one seen on postcards by everyone who visits Scotland and the Edinburgh area.

“A must do if weather is kind!”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

On our 'must do' list for years and so pleased we stopped and made the effort! Park on Fife side at the Queensferry Hotel car park. Follow signs for Deep Sea World or from Fife Side take the Fife Costal Route and turn right towards North QueenferryThere is a small path up the side of the hotel at the bridge side . The inland walkway is closed at the moment but go down some steps and up the other side to get to the other walkway. Actually much better views of the Forth Rail Bridge from the far side. An easy walk over and back with stunning views if the weather is clear. Much more air and can be windy- so wrap up. We were so lucky as it was hot and we could see for ever!
Do stop as you will love the walk and it is free! Well worth going down into North Queensferry to see both bridges from another angle.
