There are many cities along the coast, as well as the Grangemouth petro-chemical complex, the Leith merchant dock, the former Methil drilling platform shipyards, the Inverkeithing Shipbreaker and Navy Yard in the city of Rozyth and many other areas of industry, such as the Forth Bridgehead area, which includes the Forth Bridgehead area, which includes Rozyth, Inverkeithing and the south rim of Dunfermline, Burntisland, Kirkcaldy, Bo'ness and Leven.

During July 2007, a two weeks test of a test-drive between Portobello, Edinburgh and Kirkcaldy, Fife was conducted by a pro-rover. Testing the system (marketed as "Forthfast") was considered a great operating profit with an 85% annual turnover of passengers[8] It was assumed that the system would reduce commuter traffic on Forth's highway and railway bridge to around 870,000 people a year [9] Despite the original result, the system was canceled in December 2011.

Situated between the Kincardine and Forth viaducts, the inner fjord has suffered the loss of about half of its former tidal zone by agricultural extraction, but mainly for industrial purposes and the large clay ponds constructed to store overburden from the Longannet coal-fired power station near Kincardine. Historical towns line the coast of Fife; Limekilns, Charlestown and Culross, founded in the sixth centuries, where Saint Kentigern was buried under the Fourth Bridge in the Firth, on the way from Rosyth to Zeebrugge.

This fjord is important for the protection of the environment and a place of special scientific interest. More than 90,000 nesting sea birds breed in the Firth of Forth Islands SPA (Special Protection Area) every year. Joseph Feeney, 13, the youngest man to float over the Firth of Forth, did the trick in 1933.

The Scottish and British words Firth refer to various Scottish and even a straits. On the North Islands one rather speaks of a smaller bay. On the eastern or south-western coasts of the state, the Firth of Lorn is an anomaly.

On the highland coastline there are many mouths, sounds and bays of a similar kind, but these are not known as " Fjords " (e.g. Minch and Loch Torridon), but are often referred to as arms of the seas. The fjord is usually the product of glacial activity and is very often associated with a large stream, where the tides of the inflowing seawater have broadened the bed of the stream to an outlet.

While the Firth of Clyde is sometimes assumed to reach Dumbarton, the Ordnance Survey maps show the transition from stream to fjord off Port Glasgow, while the transition takes place at the end of the bank, where the stream intersects a sandbank off Greenock at the intersection with Gare Loch or even further westwards at Gourock Point.

Some firthen are an exception. Cromarty Firth on the eastern Scottish coastline, for example, is similar to a large hole with only a relatively small run to the ocean and Solway Firth and Moray Firth are rather oversized. Pentland Firth is more of a narrowness than a cove or an inlets.

the Caledonian Canal and Loch Ness at Inverness. Holes adjacent to the Firth: Hole Loch Lochy, Hole Linnhe, Hole Leven, Hole Oich. Arms of the sea adjacent to the Firth of Clyde: The Gare Loch, Loch Long, Holy Loch, Loch Striven, Loch Riddon in front of the Kyles of Bute, Loch Fyne and Campbeltown Loch.

Notice that Glasgow is on the tide border of the Clyde and Clydebank, the Erskine Bridge and Dumbarton are at the mouth of the stream as they expand towards Port Glasgow. Bute, Cumbrae, Arran In Scots Gallic, the Firth of Clyde is considered as two distinct entities, the land facing end being named Linne Chluaidh (which means the same as the English one), while the area around the southern part of Arran, Kintyre and Ayrshire/Galloway is An Linne Ghlas[? ???as?].

The Solway Firth (entrance with the Eden, Esk and Nith Rivers). Firth is off the Solway coastline. They are linked to the North Sea or part of it. Dornoch, Dornoch Brigde (impressive half a nile long street bridge), Bonar Brigde, Kyle of Sutherland, Tain, Portmahomack on Tarbat Ness (fishing town on the eastern coastline from western to northwestern).

The Firth of Inverness, Moray Firth and Beauly Firth (a Loch-Firth). Seldom found on contemporary charts, the Firth of Inverness connects the Ness River, the Ness Hole and the other lakes of the Great Glen and the sections of the Caledonian Canal with the Firth of Lorne on the western Scottish coastline.

Locations on Moray Firth: Inverness, Nairn, Fortrose, Fort George. Locations on Beauly Firth: Beauly. First of Tay (mouth of the river Tay). This is Buddon Ness. The 2,512 metre long Forth Road Bridge and the 2,498 metre long Forth Bridge span it. Pentland Firth.

Especially in Shetland "firth" can relate to smaller bays, although the number of geos, voes and wicks is equally high. Linne is used in the Scots and Irish languages to relate to most of the above mentioned Firth's; it is also used on the sounds of Sleat, Crowlinound, Cuillinound, Song of Jura, Song of Raasay and part of Loch Linnhe.

In the North Islands, the words "firth" and "sound" are also often used in an arbitrary or interchangeable way. The Bluemull sounds, for example, are very similar to some of the fjords on the Shetland Islands. The Solway Firth (entrance with the Eden, Esk and Nith Rivers). Firth is off the Solway coast.
