Looking across the bridge

The bridge across the River Tummel between Logierait and Ballinluig is a relatively new structure, which in a round about way replaces two older bridges. The old road bridge lay a little way to the north, and it's location can be traced by following the two curving spur roads that were once the A827. Today little of it remains, apart from the base courses of the Abutment stonework.

There was also a railway bridge here once, spanning the river immediately to the north of the modern road bridge. Again, the base courses of the abutments can be seen on the river banks, but when the current bridge was built a third site was chosen, allowing a new straight alignment on the A827 right across the river to the Ballinluig Junction where the A827 terminates on the A9.

The bridge itself is a 3 span girder bridge supported on two concrete piers in the riverbed. It carries a wide S2 carriageway with pavements on both sides.
