Thomas Telford’s Finest Highland Bridge by 


Thomas Telford’s Finest Highland Bridge, in Perthshire, Scotland.

Dunkeld and Birnam on either side of the River Tay are linked by the solid seven arched bridge built in 1809.

The 4th Duke of Atholl commissioned Thomas Telford the great Scottish engineer to build the toll bridge in 1809. Telford did much to open the Highlands with canals, roads and bridges, many still in use today. In 1879 the locals successfully rioted against the continual toll charges, as the cost of the bridge must have been repaid by then. The large white toll gate was removed for the last time, in the middle if the night, to prevent a public demonstration

    stunning shot Tom—absolutely beautiful…….. what is the Atholl Castle—been there, but eludes me for the minute…………

  • You probably mean Blair Athol Castle, Perthshire or possibly the Atholl Palace Hotel in Pitlochry.

    This is nice peaceful photo with a “feel good factor” to it. Thomas Telford also built a bridge at Morpeth, nine miles from us.

    Well yeah, you’d think 70 years of tolls would be enough to pay for a bridge….lol! Still, no doubt the upkeep is costing a bomb now! Gorgeous sight, Tom, and thanks for the history too.
