Forth Bridges

North Queensferry




Three bridges spanning three centuries, magnificent views over the Firth of Forth, historical facts, mythical tales, urban wildlife and the historic settlements of North and South Queensferry. It's all yours to discover on the new Forth Bridges Trail.


Explore at Leisure The iconic Forth Bridges and historic communities

The Forth Bridges Trail is a circular walk that takes in the iconic Forth Bridges and the distinctive historic communities of North and South Queensferry.

The trail is approximately 5 miles. You can start it at any point with plenty of stops on the way. 

The area is rich in history, heritage, wildlife, nature and beauty. And you’ll get some pretty impressive views of the bridges.

The trail will take you across the bridges by foot, cycle or train to explore both sides of the Firth of Forth. You can also take a boat trip under the bridges. 

We’re excited to share the story of the bridges and some of the history, quirks and characteristics that make this area so special.

Follow the trail signs to look out for the world’s smallest working lighthouse, the rock ledges where ferries landed, and Hawes Inn, mentioned in Robert Louis Stevenson’s novel Kidnapped.

Read tales of the Butlaw Fairy, the ghostly howl and the monkey's revenge. And most of all, enjoy the three bridges spanning three centuries.
