Full Description

This bridge at Drochaid Undalain was noted by the OS (NKB) in 1966 as being disused. It cannot be ascertained whether it dates from the late 18th or the early 19th century as the style of both periods is identical. Logie (1997) comments that this single span stone bridge is now traversed by the modern tarmac road.
Visited by OS (NKB) 4 October 1966.
M Logie (Highland Council) 1997; NMRS MS 1007/6.
