I was in Edinburgh on Saturday and saw a couple of lighthouses.

Some amazing architecture on the Forth Bridge, especially considering the age in which it was built!

A cantilever bridge -- a bold venture at the time.

The bridge looks brilliant now they have finally finished painting it.
I tried to add an attachment here of an earlier bridge photo (when it was getting painted) but failed so added it to the photos in the link above.
