Where are we? Craigellachie Bridge, River Spey, Scotland

Coordinates 57.4912° N, 3.1938° W

Why tour here? This wonderful 19th-century bridge, built in 1814 and spanning the River Spey, is the oldest surviving cast iron bridge in Scotland. It was designed by celebrated Scottish engineer Thomas Telford and crosses the Spey in a single span.

Don’t miss… The Glen Grant Distillery, on the Speyside Malt Whisky Trail, is just four miles north of the bridge.
