Kilninver Bridge

Kilninver Bridge carries the B844 over the River Euchar at Kilninver. It is a simple stone arch carrying a level single track roadway between flat topped parapets. Three of the four parapet terminals curve down into the ground, the fourth on the south east corner, being the most extended. The north east parapet end is splayed to accommodate the neighbouring junction. Little seems to be known about the history of the bridge, although it appears to be early 19th Century in date. However, it is believed that a bridge crossed here at the time that Clachan Seil Bridge was built in 1792, so the bridge could be older.

Junction

Immediately to the east of the bridge lies a junction between the two spurs of the B844. The longer spur from the north gets priority at what is a simple T junction because of the higher volume of tourist traffic travelling between Oban and the islands. This junction was previously that starting point of the B844 with the two spurs being the mainline of the A816 before the bypass was built. At that time, priority would have been with the through route.
