This view shows the bridge from the south west, illustrating its slender construction, and showing the opening span towards the centre of the bridge. In the foreground is the ramped pier which was the western terminal of the ferry to Dornie. This bridge was bypassed in the late 1980s, and dismantled in 1991. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
