Artist's Description

The small town of North Queensferry, Fife, Scotland nestles under the north end of the Forth Bridge, also known as the Forth Rail Bridge. Shot from the walkway on the adjacent Forth Road Bridge.

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

Along with the Forth Road Bridge (about half a mile to the west) these two bridges form the main traffic arteries north and south.

One of the activity that helped shape North Queensferry, literally, was quarrying for granite. The evidence isn’t obvious at first, until you realise that much of the rocky headland has been scooped out from behind. This leaves an arc of high cliffs that plunge into the deep pool occupied since the early 1990s by Deep Sea World, complete with its underwater walkways. This is now one of Fife’s leading tourist attractions.

Behind the bridge you can see an Oil Tanker tied up at the offshore oil handling facility at Hound Point.
