Bridges across the Firth of Forth at Queensferry
Bridges across the Firth of Forth at Queensferry
Ten miles west of Edinburgh, Queensferry has been an important crossing over the Firth of Forth since 1071 when Malcolm III granted free passage at the 'Queens Ferry' for pilgrims on their way to St Andrews. A townsman told me that the first bombs dropped on the United Kingdom in World War II were aimed at the bridge on the right of the picture.
