Across the Firth of Forth to Culross


This picture story was submitted by Helen Mason of Caledon


This spring I travelled to Scotland and visited a number of photogenic places!

This bridge below is known as the Queens Crossing and is the newest of three bridges over the Fifth of Forth near Edinburgh. The Firth of Forth is the estuary, or firth, of several Scottish rivers including the River Forth. 

The oldest of the three bridges is the rail bridge built in 1890 and it’s still in use. The other road bridge which replaced the ferry was opened around 1963.

On the north side of the bridge in the county of Fife is the charming mediaeval village of Culross. This picturesque burgh (town) dates back to the 13th century and was once a busy port for the coal and salt mines.

The original buildings and cobbled streets are well maintained by the Scottish national trust and make the modern cars look a bit strange.

This gorgeous clematis almost obscured the doorway.
