Forth Bridge 125th Anniversary: Waterside Properties

Forth Bridge 125th Anniversary: Waterside Properties

2015 marks the 125th birthday of one of Scotland’s most iconic landmarks, the Forth Rail Bridge. Opened by the-then Prince of Wales (later King Edward VII) in 1890, the bridge is the world’s longest cantilever bridge and contains ten times more steel than the Eiffel Tower. To commemorate the occasion there is an abseil over the edge of the famous structure on 21st June and 18th October and the second annual Bridges Festival in September.

You don’t need to hang over the edge of one of the world’s most magnificent structures to get a good view of the water. The below properties all feature stunning coastal views and are currently up for sale by Rettie & Co
