Famous Bridge - 2019-04-27th, Sligachan, Skye, Scotland, UK
Due to the previous 2 weeks sunny weather, there was not a lot of water under the old bridge like most photos you see of it.
Sligachan has long been an important junction on Skye, and the bridge across the River Sligachan forms part of the only road leading to the west end of the island.
The oldest known bridge is that still standing alongside the modern road. Whether it replaced an even older bridge, or more likely a ford, is uncertain. The bridge itself appears to have been built in the 1820s and consists of three arches. The middle arch is the widest, but the side arches are not mere flood arches, as the River Sligachan is a wide and ferocious piece of water for most of the year. The roadway is slightly humpbacked over the large central arch and only single track.
