About the Firth of Forth

The Firth of Forth is teaming with wildlife and it has some of Scotland’s most beautiful harbours. Take a blast around the bay or if you prefer something more relaxing take a trip to the Isle of May with its Nature Reserve, 12th century monastery and the oldest light house in Scotland. The Firth is also a popular diving location with the wrecks of warships from the Second World War.

The Three Bridges

Take your pick from kayaking, canoeing, dinghy sailing or powerboating and make for the water. The three iconic bridges spanning the river - Kincardine Bridge, Forth Road Bridge and Forth Rail Bridge – are a sight to behold.
