It would be nice to have a picture ....

Yes, I've got one I took on the roof of the Ocean Terminal at Leith, showing the bridges in the far distance. I just have to find it on my harddisk.....Renata 11:07 Nov 6, 2002 (UTC)

Isn't Firth of Forth referenced in one of Shakespeare's plays, either Macbeth or Hamlet (probably the former)?

See the Inchcolm article. --MacRusgail 02:06, 13 August 2007 (UTC)

The Firth is a fjord[edit]

The Firth of Forth is a fjord, not only by the ethmology of "firth".
Look, what I've found by Google:

the Forth Bridgehead area[edit]

What is the Forth Bridgehead area? Not a term I've heard - clarification of which towns/villages and a citation would be useful. Mutt Lunker (talk) 00:40, 13 November 2009 (UTC)

The Forth Bridgehead area is a term used to encompass land around the northern approaches to the Forth Road Bridge. It was probably first coined by Fife Council in connection with proposals to alleviate the considerable traffic congestion that occcurs in peak periods at this one road bridge connecting the principal population centres of Fife with employment locations in and around Edinburgh. More recently, as former Ministry of Defence land has become available for redevelopment, property speculators have begun to use the term, seemingly to imply proximity to the bridge and supposed ease of access to Scotland's capital city. As used todaay, the term covers Rosyth Dockyard and former Naval Base (the latter having been redeveloped as a series of industrial and office campuses and a ferry port), Inverkeithing (whose industrial zone around its harbour is rather run-down at the moment), and the southern edge of Dunfermline, particularly the relatively modern Carnegie Campus business park immediately north of the A823(M) motorway spur off the M90 and the Pitreavie industrial estate on the west side of the A823 Queensferry Road. Frequent references to the Bridgehead can be found in the Fife Council free paper, Fife Direct (www.fifedirect.org.uk) and in the Dunfermline and Central Fife local newspapers.Jamjarface (talk) 23:12, 30 August 2010 (UTC)

Is it properly "Firth" or "firth"?[edit]

In the last two paragraphs, it says "The Firth is important..." with a capital F, and the next paragraph says "oil transfer between ships in the firth" with a lower case f. Is "firth" without the capital letter correct, or not? --DThomsen8 (talk) 04:19, 9 December 2012 (UTC)
