Looking across the bridge

The bridge across the Tay at Logierait was built to carry a railway line heading west to Aberfeldy, from where coaches took passengers to Kenmore, and then a steamer up Loch Tay to Killin station, providing a scenic day out for the well-to-do of Glasgow and the Central belt. The line was closed in 1964 and 30 years later the local community took ownership of the bridge.

In 2000 refurbishment started, and the bridge is now open to traffic, as a community-owned road bridge, and whilst technically a private road, there are no restrictions at either end, and no toll is charged. It also carries the NCN77 cycle route.

The bridge itself is a combined truss and girder bridge, with large steel girders spanning under the roadway, and further strength gained from the high lattice work trusses along either side. There are two main spans, with twinned piers in the river, and lesser spans at either end connecting to the abutments which provide room for floodwater.
