“Brilliant bridge”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 August 2014

Forth road bridge. Views are splendid. Many couples come to get pictures on their wedding day with the forth road bridge in the background. It's so lovely and so popular. I love going over in the car and watching the scenery as I am passing by.

“Tower Top Trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2014

I was one of 2014 lucky people celebrating the 50 year anniversary of the opening of the road bridge, and could remember it well as it coinsided with me leaving school and getting a job.
The view from the top of the tower at the North Queensferry side is breathtaking in all directions and luckily there was no wind and a fine sunny day the work on the third bridge could be seen easily, off course the views from the bridge deck itself is fine but up top the traffic noise is nil.
The ideal way to visit is park at South Queensferry walk across the east side to North Queensferry gaining views and snaps of the world famous Forth Rail bridge and return the west side viewing the new Queensferry crossing and Rosyth dockyard where the aircraft carrier Queen Elisabeth is being fitted out.

“walk”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2014

had a walk over the Forth bridge today, it was a lovely day but can get very windy .At the fife end there is about 80 steps up,but if you want to climb up to get a better view its not really worth it as view is restricted by bushes and fencing.
