Forth Road Bridge tower trip auction!
Members of the public are being given the chance to bid for a VIP tour of the Forth Road Bridge, with all proceeds going to charity.
The lucky winner will receive a guided tour for two people, including a trip to the top of one of the main towers, a visit under the deck and a 90-minute Three Bridges cruise of the Forth, courtesy of Forth Boat Tours.
This initiative forms part of a wider fundraising effort by Amey staff for the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.
The main towers of the Forth Road Bridge rise 156 metres above sea level, offering spectacular views of all three Forth Bridges, the Firth of Forth, Edinburgh, Fife and beyond. Tours for the public are not normally available for sale – only charity auction-winners will get this unique opportunity.
