The Bridge of Isauld carries the A836 over the Isauld Burn near Reay on the north coast of Scotland. There are two small stone arches of different sizes spanning the burn, and carrying a two-way road between low parapets. The exact age of the bridge is unknown, although it is believed to be early 19th Century. The parapet design suggest some influence form Thomas Telford, although the arches are somewhat shallower than he generally used.


Immediately to the east of the bridge, the A836 meets the C1001, an important minor road which cuts across inland to the southern side of Thurso. The junction is a simple give way T junction, but one of the busier junctions with a minor road along the long route of the A836.
