Feshie Bridge carries the B970 across the River Feshie south of Aviemore in Strathspey. It dates back to the late 18th Century, ans uses a natural rock formation to minimise the necessary span of the main arch across the river. There is an additional, small, flood arch on the east bank spanning a rock ledge some height above the normal river level.

Close up of widening

As the road reaches ground level on the east bank, it also turns sharply to the south. Clearly this bend has at some point proved too tight, and the parapet has been rebuilt on a 9now very rusty) steel girder, supporting a concrete slab which gives more turning space on the inside of the bend. This is obviously an old repair, probably dating back to the first half of the 20th Century. The rest of the south parapet also gives the impression of having been rebuilt at some point.
