Full Description

(Location cited as NC 837 652). Bridge, Strathy, early 20th century. A handsome and unusual bow-string, concrete-girder bridge.
J R Hume 1977.

(Location cited as NC 836 652). This unusual bridge was built in the 1920's by Owen Williams. It takes the form of a bowstring girder, made in reinforced concrete with ten vertical spars set 9ft 5ins (2.87m) apart in a manner paralleled in two bridges on Rannoch Moor. This bold design is perhaps spoiled by the pedestrian walkways and iron railings pinned to the sides.
G Nelson 1990.

This bridge carries the A836 public road over the River Strathy.
Information from RCAHMS (RJCM), 1 May 1998.
