Forth Bridges

Edinburgh and Lothians


Forth Bridge, first opened in 1890, was the first of the three bridges to be built. It was the first major steel structure globally and still holds the record as the longest cantilever bridge to this day.
Forth Road Bridge opened to the public in 1964, suspended 1006 meters between two gigantic towers. At a total of 2.5km, it was the longest suspension bridge outside America.
Queensferry Crossing, the most recent bridge, opened in 2017 with a 2.7km slender design, the longest three-tower cable-stayed bridge in the world. These bridges are an incredible feat of engineering and are a stunning sight to behold.
