VIEW UNDERNEATH SCOTLAND’S BIGGEST ENGINEERING WORK

The Forth bridge is a magnificent and majestic bridge that goes over the Firth of Forth in Scotland. Firth is an old Norse word which means estuary. The Forth river flows into the North sea. The bridge is awesome and every time I cross it I feel humbled and marvel at the magnitude of works that went into this piece of Scotland’s claim to engineering prowess. Scotland is famous for having some of the worlds amazing engineering pieces of work, but this bridge which is 9 miles West of Edinburgh spanning a total length of 8,296 feet it is almost Scotland’s biggest engineering work. It was opened on 4 March 1890 and is sometimes referred to as the Forth Rail Bridge to distinguish it from the Forth Road Bridge.The bridge connects Edinburgh with Fife and when you go over it in the train you get a great view of  South Queensferry from above travelling to Dundee or Aberdeen heading from Edinburgh.

 

To get underneath the bridge, you will have to travel in from Edinburgh crossing the river on the bridge and then take the first exit to North Queensferry . Follow the view of the bridge to reach underneath it.
