This lovely cantilever bridge spans Loch Etive at its narrowest point, six miles north-east of Oban on the west coast . It was originally built to carry the Callander and Oban Railway's branch line to Ballachulish which opened in 1903. In 1914, a road was added next to the railway track, then in1966, the bridge was converted for the sole use of road vehicles and pedestrians.
Below: some of my photos from the last time I was there

The rapids here are amazing to watch during the ebbing tide. The seawater in the loch streams out through narrows creating strong currents and waves.
