In 2015, UNESCO inscribed the Forth Bridge as the sixth World Heritage site in Scotland. The structure is a symbol of the country’s architectural, industrial, and transportation heritage.
The Forth Bridge is a cantilever railway bridge located in the east of the country, 14 km (9 mi) west of Edinburgh. It spans the Forth estuary between the villages of South Queensferry and North Queensferry and has a total length of 2,467 m (8,094 ft). The highest point of the bridge stands 110 m (360 ft) above high water and 137 m (449 ft) above its foundations.
