Forth Rail Bridge

In 2019 I had just been through some relatively serious surgery and my Wife had treated me to a guided tour of Outlander filming sites in Scotland. For those that do not know this is a TV series based on a series of books and based in Scotland. We both loved the first few seasons, although I have given up as found season 5 boring!

We started our day visiting the village of Culross in Fife, a great example of stepping back into history. A beautiful small town that still holds the architecture and feeling of old Scotland. We then spent the rest of the day visiting various sites including Doune Castle, Linlithgow Palace and Blackness Castle. All places you should add to your day trip list!

But we finished in South Queensferry where this picture was taken. This is an amazing small village right on the banks of the Firth of Forth, and has a range of cafes, restaurants and ice cream parlours! Be sure to check out Rogue Bros café although be quick as they run quickly!

The Firth Rail bridge has an amazing history and is still used for rail crossings into the North of Scotland. It is worth researching but fun fact; it is painted every 25 years to keep the stunning red fresh!

Although this is an iconic image of Scotland, it holds a special place for me as I had an incredible day with my Wife at a time where I definitely needed some cheering up.
