Alex was on holiday from work recently, we couldn’t get away as our daughter was in school so we decided to create the holiday vibe at home. We began with breakfast out because I always think that reminds you of being abroad.
We took a drive down to South Queensferry to check up on the progress of the new Queensferry Crossing, for those not from Edinburgh, this will be the third bridge crossing the Firth of Forth. The other two are the Forth Road Bridge and the most famous and recognisable, the Forth Rail Bridge.
Built in 1882, the Forth Rail Bridge is an iconic structure in Scotland and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Visitors to Edinburgh will often take a trip to see it. You can also sail on the Maid of the Forth and get a different view from the water. If you want to stay on dry land though, you can get a great view from Antico at Orocco Pier – and as we discovered, a rather nice breakfast too.
We ordered the full breakfast which was very good value at £8.95 and include tea or coffee, juice, and toast.
If you’re looking for somewhere for an evening meal with a view of the Forth Rail Bridge, try Samphire at Orocco Pier.
