Full Description

This single span stone bridge, now superseded by the nearby B862, is flanked on either side by a grass-covered stretch of military road. Spanning the Allt an Reidhean, it is believed to be an original Wade bridge.The underside of the bridge and the abutments seem to be in a fairly stable condition, although the grouting has fallen off in places and the middle section of the W side of the bridge has collapsed. There is a stock fence running across the length of the bridge.
