Archaeology Notes

NH30NE 19 380 088.

'There has been a wooden bridge on the River Tarff from time immemorial, close to the walls of Fort Augustus, kept in constant repair and rebuilt when requisite by government, but a few years ago it was greatly damaged and is now in a most ruinous state, so that it has become hazardous even to footpassengers'.

NSA (Wm Fraser) 1845

No trace of an old wooden bridge crossing the River Tarff here.

Visited by OS 28th February 1979.
