Bridge of Findhorn is the bridge on the A96 across the River Findhorn west of Forres. The bridge was built in 1938 by Blyth and Blyth engineers and consists of three major steel arch trusses spanning the river between stone abutments. The three main arch ribs, which taper towards the banks, are connected to the slim girders under the road deck by a series of vertical hangers. The three ribs are also connected by small lattice trusses criss crossing between them. The length of the span is approximately 90m, making it a substantial structure.
