NN58NE 14 5758 8929
On the western bank of the River Mashie are the remains of a footbridge. The remains were recorded here during a detailed archaeological survey of Strathmashie Community Forest near Laggan, Highland. The survey was carried out to assess the evidence for past human use and to ascertain whether there was enough archaeology to develop a heritage trail in the forest. The remains consist of large rotting tree trunks, up to 15m in length with iron nails protruding. Local knowledge stated that the bridge was constructed by Willie Leighton, a local forester. A possible track and landing area is visible on the eastern bank opposite the remains.
