The most spectacular 18th century bridge in Scotland, it crosses a narrow gorge on the River Findhorn.
This impressive bridge was built in 1755 by Major William Caufield and three companies of soldiers. It crosses a deep twisting gorge on the River Findhorn and carries the once important military road that linked Braemar to Fort George on the Moray Firth.From the roadside car park there is path out to a viewpoint over the gorge. However, to really appreciate the scale of the bridge, its parapet stands some 60 feet above the summer water level; you need to clamber down to the edge of the river by following rough path on the north side. From here you will understand why it is a well known ˜tombstoning" bridge jumping spot.
