Lower Foyers Bridge crosses the River Foyers in the village of Foyers.

The current road bridge carries the U2823 road to Lower Foyers on a panel bridge. It is thought the intention was for this structure to be temporary either until a permanent replacement could be built or the original bridge could be repaired to carry traffic, although it has now been in use for nearly 20 years.

The original bridge is sited approximately 150m upstream and is a single span stone arch bridge which constructed in 1862. This bridge is classified as the U1177 road, but was closed to vehicular traffic in 1994 and later to pedestrians due to the structure being unsafe.


The River Foyers is crossed upstream by the White Bridge.
