The River Forth (Gaelic: Uisge For or Abhainn Dhubh, meaning “black river”), 47 km (29 miles) long, is the major river draining the eastern part of the central belt of Scotland.

The river Forth rises in Loch Ard in the Trossachs, west of Stirling, to Kincardine where it widens to an estuary (or ‘firth’) – The Firth of Forth.

It flows down to the magnificence of the Forth Rail Bridge. The Forth, now known as the ‘Firth of Forth’ then flows between Kingdom of Fife to the north, and Lothian (Edinburgh) to the south.

There is something for everyone along the Forth Valley.
