Crossings related to the B8004

The Loy Bridge crosses the River Loy at the entrance to Glen Loy. The river then flows underneath the Caledonian Canal on a three-arch aqueduct before joining the River Lochy near the ruins of Torcastle.

The bridge itself is a simple stone arch, dating to the early 19th century when the canal was built (started 1802), and constructed along with the road as part of that project, or Telford's Commission on Highland Roads and Bridges. It carries the B8004 north from Banvie, Fort William, up to Gairlochy, and so on to Spean Bridge.
