BHC Pic of the Week Nr. 201

Our 201st Pic of the Week came a bit late on the account of the 15th Anniversary of the I-35W Bridge Disaster on August 2nd. Nevertheless, better late than never. 🙂 This pic takes us to the Scottish Highlands where this beautiful bridge can be found. There are two bridges spanning a unique waterfall though one will have a difficult time seeing the bottom span. Nevertheless, they are both stone arches built centuries ago but have maintained their beauty up to this day. You will find this near the village of Invermoriston, which is 13 km away from Fort Augustus.

Please note though that this bridge is the smaller span located upstream from an even bigger bridge, located at Invermoriston Falls. There, a two-span stone arch bridge, built by Thomas Telford in 1813, spans the falls itself. But unlike this bridge, this one is only one bridge and not two, plus it’s more of a tourist attraction than this rather more secluded area.
