The Forth Bridge is a famous Scottish landmark and UNESCO World Heritage Site. In 2016, it was voted the greatest man-made wonder in Scotland.
The railway bridge connects Scotland to the rest of the UK. It crosses the Firth of Forth, which opens out towards the North Sea. This bridge made it possible to travel by rail from London to Aberdeen. Construction started in 1883 and the bridge opened in 1890. The distinctive cantilever design became one of the first major steel structures designed in Britain. You can take the train across the bridge from Dalmeny station, which is located at the top of the hill above Queensferry.
