“Transport Heritage”
Reviewed July 26, 2014

It is a wonderful sight and a pleasure to stay by it.The trains make a sound like distant thunder. You can sail under it as well as ride over it.

“Nice few hours on the water”
Reviewed July 20, 2014 via mobile

We took the tour bus from St Andrew Sq which has an interesting commentary about things you are actually passing on the way. eg Victorian and Georgian architecture. We arrived and got on the "Forth Belle" cruise boat and had a very nice 90min cruise or so. Again interesting commentary. The boat stops at Inchcolm Is but we didn't have the time to get off. We were lucky with weather and on a day like that the tour under the bridges is well worth doing.

“Fantastic piece of craftsmanship.”
Reviewed July 14, 2014

Went over the Forth Bridge on the way to Deep Sea World and the views were fantastic even on a overcast day.

If you are visiting Edinburgh I recommend travelling by train just for the experience of travelling over this brilliant piece of engineering.

“Simply the best”
Reviewed July 14, 2014

You can view the railway bridge close up by parking at either end, indeed the views are better here than those available when you cross by train. Apparently walking tours are available, but not on my day of visit.
