Operating from South Queensferry, Lothian, Scotland in the shadow of the world famous Forth Bridge, the Maid of the Forth offers a unique range of cruises on the Firth of Forth.

This unique steel Cantilever Bridge with three diamond-shaped towers crosses the river Forth from South Queensferry to North Queensferry, Scotland. The bridge was designed by Sir John Fowler and Benjamin Baker. The bridge was built by Sir William Arrol.

Constructed started in 1883. The bridge was opened in 1890 at a cost of £2.5m and 57 fatalities among the construction crew (it is now believed that the actual death toll is likely to have been closer to 80).

The bridge is still in use today, carrying the railways to the north from Edinburgh.

    Now this is a sight I miss so much from Scotland, the old bridge is still looking so grand after all those years of good service, wonderful colours and clarity, very well composed and captured Tom,
