  • A real piece of the areas history
  • Highly recommend checking this out! Located in Carrbridge, you can access a lower view point down stairs and I climbed down to the river/rocks for a better angle to take some pictures. Be cautious if you decide to go see the actual bridge, a lot of people wanted to climb over and go to the top of it but I felt like that isn’t too much. A fragile piece of history from 1717
