River Awe - Bonawe, Scotland, United Kingdom

All photos by Dave Cooper. Please do not reuse without permission. Dave writes: "I am not sure why Gillian Nelson [author of Highland Bridges] has called it the Bonawe Bridge because Bonawe is located on the other side of Loch Etive almost opposite to where the River Awe discharges into the loch. The white house [seen in the background of one of the photos] is Inverawe House."

"The bridge has been refurbished at least in part since the photo on page 199 of Highland Bridges. The fencing is new and now mounted inside the handrail rather than outside. The towers are galvanised steel mounted on concrete piers. The bridge deck, steps, and walkway at the one end are anti slip coated steel. The bridge looks as though it should be very stable. It turned out to be surprisingly lively when walked on."
