Carr Bridge

The village of CarrBridge is in the Scottish Highlands, near the resort town of Aviemore.

 

Within the village is the "Carr Bridge" (pictured) which is the oldest stone bridge in the Highlands, was built in 1717, and is described as a "Packhorse" bridge - that is a bridge without sides so that a horse with panniers can pass without being obstructed.

 

The bridge is now unstable and is recommended only to be viewed from afar. Jumping off the bridge into the River Dulnain below had long been a popular pastime for younger locals and the more adventurous tourists.
