This bridge is a very simple timber and steel structure spanning the River Spey at Kincraig. Its historic name of Boat of Insh suggests that the bridge replaced a long established ferry-boat service at the same spot.

The Bridge

Believed to date from the end of the 19th Century, this bridge initially appears to be lucky to have survived so long spanning the often tempestuous Spey. However, with the large pool of Loch Insh immediately upstream, the flow is somewhat regulated here. The bridge has eight piers in the water between the rubble abutments. The two closest to the banks are steel trimmed timber, then a pair of substantial stone piers with the four central ones reverting to timber. These support a Steel and timber deck, with very flimsy looking timber parapets.
