Statement of Interest

Now by-passed. Though commonly believed to be by Thomas

Telford and though undoubtedly incorporated in line of road

built by Telford for the Commission for Highland roads and

Bridges in 1808-1811, this bridge appears structually to be

of mid-18th century date. Parapet re-built in 1984.

At this point River Moriston forms parish boundary with

Boleskine and Abertarff Parish.
