The Forth Bridge

Crossing the Firth of Forth Over the centuries, the river has been crisscrossed by ferries. With the prevailing winds and high seas experienced on the Firth, these were often rather hazardous crossings. However, in the 18th and 19th centuries the alternative was a long, circuitous coach trip via Linlithgow and Stirling and back again along the north shore of the river. D.G. McBeth
