Firth of Forth

From Openwaterpedia

The Firth of Forth is the estuary or firth of Scotland's River Forth, where it flows into the North Sea, between Fife to the north, and Lothian to the south. It was known as Bodotria in Roman times.

Firth of Forth Swim[edit]

The Firth of Forth Swim is a 1.4-mile course across the width of the Forth from Hawes pier, South Queensferry, all the way along the bridge to the old pier at North Queensferry. The Firth of Forth is the largest estuary on the East Coast, leading out on to the North Sea between Fife and Lothian.
