View to the West
This view looks to the west, up the Firth of Forth from the northern
tower of the Forth Road Bridge.
The light building with the tall chimney, in the distance, is
Longannet Power Station, about 11 miles upstream on the northern
shore of the Firth of Forth.
The small rock in the foreground has a
small lighthouse - 'The Beamer'. This rock is to become
a foundation for the pillar of the new road bridge (or 'Forth
Replacement Crossing' due to be built across the Firth of Forth
between 2011 and 2016.
