How to walk the forth road bridge one way?

i would like to walk the bridge with my father and one way would do it for us.
1 Is there a means of transport to get back?
2 which way would give us the best views as we walk?

    Hi @Dottie!

     Welcome to the community! :)

    The Forth Road Bride offers some amazing views over the Firth of Forth, whichever direction you choose to walk.  There are two paths; the east path and the west path which are 2.5km (or just over 1.5 mile) long, but keep an eye on the Forth Road Bridge website as there will be some path maintenance taking place during early October so only one path will be available at times.
    There's a handy map of the paths  and this also shows the nearest rail stations and directions to the starting point. 

    I wonder if any other community members have walked across the bridge and could share their experiences?

    There are bus stops either side of the bridge so you could walk across and catch a bus back.  Call Traveline Scotland on 0871 200 22 33 for times. If you can walk on the RHS as you face the bridge - then you get a great view of the Rail Bridge and across to Fife. That also means you are on the right side of the road to catch a bus back.
