Full Description

A road bridge built in the 1930s.
J Aitken : 9/3/2004

A road bridge replaced the surviving old bridge (adjacent on E side). Constructed from pre-stressed re-inforced concrete forming an arch, the bridge is built on a bend. The flat deck is protected on each side by rubble-built parapets. During July 1997 a photographic survey of the road bridge at Brora was undertaken. The purpose of this survey was to enhance and augment the existing National Monuments Record Scotland holdings.
