The River Loyne Bridge carries the A87 across the River Loyne to the east of Loch Loyne. The bridge was opened in 1957 as part of the new alignment for the A87, bypassing the section flooded by the damming of Loch Loyne as part of the Glen Garry Hydro Electric Scheme. For more information on the old road, see A87 (Loch Loyne).
The bridge is constructed of Concrete, as indeed are all of the bridges on the new road. This particular bridge also feels a lot wider than the average width of the road, although not really wide enough to carry an S3 road. The most unusual thing about it, however, is that it doesn't seem to ever have had any proper parapets, the edge of the bridge being rather flimsy looking metal railings.
