Sixth Wonder of Scotland: The Forth Bridge
The 125-year-old Forth Bridge has been named as Scotland’s Sixth UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The world-famous railway bridge joins Edinburgh Old and New Towns, the Heart of Neolithic Orkney, New Lanark, the Antonine Wall and St Kilda among the boosted collection of Scottish World Heritage Site.
The cantilever bridge spans the Firth of Forth on the east coast of Scotland, connecting Edinburgh with the Kingdom of Fife. When it was constructed it was one of the most ambitious projects of its kind to be attempted. At its peak more than 4,500 men were employed building it, with construction taking eight years to complete.
Where, or what, do you think should be Scotland’s seventh World Heritage Site?
