Jakob Frenzel (Germany):
in 1993 I made a trip with my parents from Edinburgh to the Sottish Highlands. In May 2011 I visited a conference in Glasgow, previous to that, we drove over the adjacent bridge and could stare at this engineering wonder bridge.
It definitely deserves to be on the list, maybe with a few others.

Kyle Magnuson (United States of America):
I visited the Forth Bridge in 2007. The picturesque monument is stunning, and could very well be inscribed in 2015. My experience at the bridge was based on an afternoon visit to North Queensferry, and travelling across the Firth of Forth itself. Therefore, I was able to appreciate two different views of the monument.

I've heard there are plans for a visitor center and platform. I do wish this was available in 2007, but I can't complain. I enjoyed my quite and serene stroll within the waterfront area of Queensferry, with the Forth Bridge towering above me.
