Crubenmore Old Bridge
soutwest of Newtonmore, Highland
associated engineer
Not known
date  circa 1802
era  Georgian  |  category  Bridge  |  reference  NN676913
The older of two bridges over the River Truim at Crubenmore, and probably built as part of road improvements by the Parliamentary Commissioners after 1802. It lies to the south of the modern road and new bridge.
It might have been designed by Telford, but is more probably the work of a military engineer. Two spans of 33ft each centre on a solid pier, mid-river, with triangular cutwaters. The arches are segmental and built of unevenly-sized stones. The voussoirs are flags of schist, clearly visible under the vaults.
The whole is a rugged and unfanciful construction.
