If you are luck you might just see the piper on the bridge, beautiful at all times day and evening, with an interesting history

Wonderful old bridge once used to take coffins over the river. Great photo opportunity in a quaint Highland village.

It’s a bridge and it’s old but remember to stop and have a look if you’re passing through. I’ve never seen a bridge quite like it anywhere in the world. Then visit one of the pleasant cafes and view the nearby craft shop.

This is a lovely old bridge and a must see when in the area. No matter the the of year it's lovely to see. It has a lot of history and is an important part of the village.

Literally in the middle of the village is the old packhorse bridge. Lots of history. Pretty picture opportunity. A few nice coffee shops nearby.

Amazing that was the only way to cross the river centuries past. The kids use it as a diving platform now for swimming on hot summer days.
