Forsinain Bridge

Forsinain Bridge is a small single arch stone bridge built in 1823 by Joseph Mitchell to one of the standard designs by Thomas Telford. Mitchell was employed as surveyor to the county of Sutherland, and responsible for many miles of roads across the county. It carries the single track A897 across the Halladale River in the upper reaches of Strath Halladale, with a very slight peak over the arch, more noticeable in the parapets than the roadway. The bridge has the typical Telford features of battered abutments and parapets which curve down at the end, although the parapets also flair out a little, particularly at the northern end.
