South Queensferry | Firth of Forth with Forth bridges


View in northeastern direction to the Firth of Forth with the Forth Road Bridge in the foreground and the UNESCO-listed Forth Bridge in the background. The Forth Bridge has carried railway traffic across the estuary since 1890, whereas the function of the road bridge was largely replaced by the newly completed Queensferry Crossing in 2017. The access roads to this new bridge pass through the viewpoint of this photograph.
