It’s hard to believe on a day like today but last week the sun did shine, and we had glorious blue skies above the Firth of Forth.
This is the beautiful view of the Forth Rail Bridge from South Queensferry, a favourite place of ours for a walk along the shore and only 10 minutes away from Edinburgh in the car. And the bridge looks even more splendid since the scaffolding (which was a permanent feature due to constant painting) has come down.
A few facts and figures for you; the overall length of the cantilever bridge is 8296ft, or just over 2.5km and the towers reach 330ft into the blue sky, or 100 metres. Follow this link for more: http://www.forthbridges.org.uk/railbridgefacts.htm
