To see this world famous site was a short walk from the Double Tree Hilton, through their gardens to the view point, then under the middle bridge to have an unimpeded view of the greatest of the three bridges.

Great to view the bridges, then to walk through the Dalmeny estate and finally to go over the new Queensferry Crossing and view it all from the north side, too!

This is well worth a visit and cross the new road bridge and travel back to Edinburgh on the rail bridge. The engineering and art are wonderful.

Well there are three bridges. 2 road. 1 train. Nice views on a nice day and particularly enjoyable if you get the train across to/from North Queensferry.
