|Oich Suspension Bridge|
Home | Bridges | Inventory | Snapshots
Of all my travels searching for lesser-known bridges, this was my favorite unexpected find. This bridge is nestled on the side of a well-traveled road that heads toward Loch Ness. The diagonal iron rods are a hallmark of James Dredge's nineteenth century suspension bridges. He built several dozen such bridges in England and Scotland, but Oich was one of the largest, if not the largest. This particular bridge has been beautifully restored since my 1995 visit.
