Craigellachie Bridge is a cast iron arch bridge in Speyside, Moray, Scotland near the village of Aberlour. It was designed by the renowned civil engineer Thomas Telford and built from 1812–1814. The bridge has a single span of approximately 46 m and was revolutionary for its time, in that it used an extremely slender arch which was not possible using traditional masonry construction.
In 1972, it was replaced by a reinforced concrete bridge which carries the A941 trunk road today. Telford’s bridge remains in good condition, and is still open to foot traffic.
