The Forth Bridges

The Forth Bridges, connecting Fife & Edinburgh since 1890, 1964 & 2017. Official website for the Queensferry Crossing, the Forth Road Bridge and the Forth Bridge - Scotland's famous three bridges spanning three centuries.

Three Bridges Spanning Three Centuries

Iconic, historic and magnificent, Scotland’s Forth Bridges are a wonder of the modern world and one of Scotland's most recognisable locations.

Towering side by side over the Firth of Forth, these structures represent the pinnacle of engineering across three centuries.

The oldest of the bridges, The Forth Bridge, is now a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site of unique global significance and interest. 

Bridging the historic settlements of North and South Queensferry, the bridges are set in an area that has history, beauty, wildlife and community spirit in abundance. 

Slow down the pace and stay a wee while to soak up the enormity of these gargantuan structures and explore the heritage-rich local area. 

You're guaranteed a warm welcome and good old-fashioned Scottish hospitality.
