Scope and Content Ballachulish Bridge, Argyll This steel N-truss road bridge was built to replace a vehicular ferry across the mouth of Loch Leven, which obviated a long journey round the head of the loch. The bridge was designed by WA Fairhurst and Partners. This view shows the bridge from the north east. The profile of the truss was designed to mitigate the harshness of a parallel truss, and the steelwork was painted green, again to minimise the impact of a large structure in a scenic area. This bridge is on the A82 trunk road from Glasgow to Fort William, and via the Great Glen, to Inverness. It carries a heavy tourist traffic, and also fish traffic from Mallaig.
