Scope and Content Bridge of Oich, Aberchalder This bridge, at first sight a conventional suspension bridge, is in fact a double cantilever structure, built to a patent by James Dredge, Bath. It has arched and pedimented pylons supporting Dredge's system of chains, carrying an iron-framed timber deck This view shows a detail of the Dredge system, with the main chain at the top, and pairs of suspenders leaving the chain and descending at an angle to support the deck. Note also the careful detailing of the handrails. This is the last Dredge bridge in Scotland still in its original location, and is now in the care of Historic Scotland. It has been repaired, and is now open to the public. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
