Built in the 1890s, the bridge is considered one of the engineering wonders of the world. Keep an eye out for the local seals and magnificent views of the Edinburgh skyline as you cruise around Inchgarvie Island, before making your way back to Port Edgar Marina, with a detour under the new Queensferry Crossing.
