The Allt Doe Bridge crosses the Allt Doe near Fort Augustus and carries the B862.

The current bridge was built in 1935 to carry the then A862 by Mears and Carus-Wilson, who were responsible for designing improvements to various other bridges in the area around the same time. The structure is a stone faced concrete bridge and is category C listed.

The original bridge at this location was constructed by General Wade in 1732 as part of a military road between Inverness and Fort Augustus. This is a single span stone bridge and is category B listed.
