If you’re nearby this is a great 300 year old bridge to see. The scenery just spoils it all. Which is a shame.

Our Hotel is very close to the bridge. I visited it every day to take a picture. The story about how the bridge is featured nearby. It well worth a look.

Don't miss viewing the Old Packhorse Bridge in Carrbridge. It's iconic Scotland. Every trip I find new angles and new lighting for my photos and everyone at home is impressed by the old bridge.

Carrbridge is very small with a few little art shops and plenty of places to eat. This beautiful bridge is a must see if you are visiting!

From seeing on TripAdvisor this monument of ancient Scottish history. This was definitely a must see as myself and my husband are residing near by. There is a little plack which gives you the background story of why this bridge was built.
