Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The Forth bridges are almost as legendary as the Loch Ness monster. Only they exist. No, really, they do. And you can see them, in reality. And stunning they are too. The iconic rail bridge is still a staggering piece of engineering, as aesthetically pleasing today as it was when it was erected.
A must see if in Scotland, not seeing the bridges would be a crime.
Majestic, miraculous, marvellous.

Parked at the Southern End of the 1960's road bridge. Free car parking and good access to the footpath and cycle way that takes you across the Forth. A great experiance as you end up being about 200ft above the River with fantastic views.

Unique and very impressive the Forth Bridge is worth making a detour to see. Whilst there we took the opportunity to take the short 3 minute ride across the bridge by service train from Dalmeny to North Queensferry. Dalmeny station is only about 15 minutes walk from South Queensferry and trains are approximately every 30 minutes. We had a stroll round North Queensferry and then walked back over the Forth Road Bridge for even more stunning views. We took our time & the trip took just over a couple of hours.

Parking at the car park beyond the shell garage in South Queensferry there is a viewing area (and a little coffee shop). Down the side of the public toilet is a ramp or steps to the start of the walk over the bridge. Enjoy the elevated view over the town, the forth and the Rail Bridge. Admire the love locks at the towers. And if you head all the way over pop down the steps into north Queensferry for a cafe and more bridge vistas.

I have always wanted to visit the Fourth Bridge so we drove from Essex to Scotland and stayed at the nearby South Queensferry Premier Inn (see separate) review. The fourth bridge is a world heritage Unesco site and i can see why. The sheer beauty of seeing the bridge after all those years are waiting brought me to tears. Its one of the most amazing sights i have ever seen in my whole life ! And there is such a story behind the making of this 130 year old bridge . I bought a book on the subject too. I walked up and had to feel it and when the tide was low i went down onto the shore. There is a statue in honour of men who died during construction.Whilst we stayed in Queensferry i visited the bridge everyday and i felt to sad when we had to leave for home. I took a photo and had it enlarged and put in a frame and put it on my bedroom wall so i can still look at it everyday. FANTASTIC !

We have travelled from Northumberland today to Scotland. We are staying in Kirkcaldy. This is the 1st time I have ever been over the Forth Bridge. I thought it was amazing. Really enjoyed the experience.
