I went to Queensferry, lovely and ancient Royal Burgh, close Edinburgh. The Forth Bridge is a symbol for Scotland and I visited it with pleasure. I think that it's a place to see and visit again.

The tour's only operate during the spring / summer. Queensferry is still worth a visit. Go up onto the forth bridge for great views of the Railway Bridge and the new bridge. Hope you have a lovely visit.
