NMRS notes:

NN49NE 3 4686 9609

On a diversion of the Wade Road of 1731 (Lin 503) which crosses the Corriyairack Pass, an arched bridge (span 6.79m) over the Allt Feith a'Mhoraire near Melgarve (Drummin) had deteriorated. There were gaps in the parapets, a hole in the arch and, most recently, erosion of the right hand upstream training wall. In 1984 the arch and parapets were repaired, the right hand abutment was grouted, and the training wall was strengthened with concrete and stone-filled gabions. Most of the original masonry was repointed.
