The Forth Road Bridge occupies a beautiful location in the Firth of Forth on the East coast of Scotland, connecting Fife and the North of Scotland with capital city Edinburgh and the South.
The bridge features a pedestrian and cycle path on both sides - perfect for enjoying the breathtaking views. Convenient parking is available at the bridge administration office - see location map on right or click here to download a more detailed map and directions in PDF format.
The bridge sets down a foot in both the historic towns of North Queensferry and South Queensferry.
A mile to the East sits the imposing Victorian rail bridge, an industrial wonder of the nineteenth century.
With the Scottish Government planning to build a third, 21st century bridge - Queensferry Crossing - to the West of the Forth Road Bridge, the Firth of Forth looks set to cement its reputation as a prime location for bridge engineering enthusiasts.
Information on the planned Forth Replacement Crossing is available on the Forth Bridges Forum website.
