Bridge of Oich

Highland | Invergarry | Suspension bridge |

[Bridge of Oich]

Two bridges span the River Oich immediately north of Loch Oich. The older of the two is a majestic suspension bridge designed by Englishman James Dredge in 1854, and affords good views up and down the Great Glen. Following restoration in the 1990s, pedestrians are welcome to cross, but cars are banished to the newer bridge a few dozen metres to the south on the A82. The same road also features a swing bridge over the parallel Caledonian Canal. Worth a long detour? No. Worth a stop if you're passing by? Sure.
