Old Bridge of Spey

This handsome bridge near Grantown-on-Spey was built by soldiers in 1754 and once carried an important military road.

The earliest bridge across the main part of the River Spey it carried the once important military road that linked Braemar to Fort George on the Moray Firth. It was built in 1754 by Major William Caufield and soldiers of the 33rd Regiment. Their achievement is commemorated on an attractive inscribed stone on the south side of the bridge. It states: AD 1754 The bridge was completed some 10 years before the first houses of the planned town of Grantown-on-Spey were built. One the best ways to reach the bridge is to walk from the centre of town down to the river through the old Anagach woods. You can also drive there. There is parking, mainly for fishermen, nearby.
