Left after 10 mins. It was just a walk over a bridge. Her accent made it more difficult for me to understand and the wind was blowing.

Fabulous tour Anne. “May the Forth be with you” too. Incredible views from up there. Great vantage point for telling us a lot about the history of the place and a lot more.

Really enjoyed this walk across the Forth Road bridge with Anne. Anne told us all about the bridge she was walking across, along with the history and stories of the other two across the Firth of Forth. She gave us some super postcard shots. She ended up at the Welcome to the Kingdom of Fife sign nearly an hour later after climbing down and then back up stairs at the end of the bridge. I hope she had a well-deserved wee dram of something when she got home! Thank you for a lovely start to my day here in British Columbia.
