^ Simple site of some pictures of military ruins/possible ruins from along the Firth of Forth. Anyone know more information about these locations? Please share if you have any knowledge of other locations aswell.

Another gallery I have nearly completed designing:

I've lived in DB for 8 years, and I never knew about those ruins!
They are definitely on my list to visit now.
Can you get to them without climbing through people's gardens?

If you look at the third photo for the Dalgety Bay ruin. Do you know where this point is?

Very easy to get too. You can park down River Walk and walk towards the point. It is a short walk and you will find some steps. Once you get to the top of the small hill.. It has a wonderful view of the Firth of Forth. Real gem of a place. I would keep dogs and children on leads. As it can be quite dangerous if you get close to the edge.

My photos are difficult to look at the moment like that. I will make a better gallery when I have the time. But I never seem to have the time!

That bridge will never fall, it's over 100 years old and solid as a rock :)
I didn't make one yet...
