Looking across the bridge
Moy Bridge crosses the River Conon near the village of Marybank carrying the A832.
The bridge was constructed in 1894 by the Cleveland Bridge Company, it consists of 14 spans of wrought iron girders on 13 cast iron piers. It is single track, with priority signage in favour of traffic coming down from the A835 junction. Also at this end are some gates, which are used when the river floods and closes the road. Warning signs warn pedestrians that the river level can rise suddenly. Despite the logical assumption that the flood affects the bridge, it actually affects the road to the south of the bridge which sits a little lower than the bridge deck!
RCAHMS: site record
Immediately to the north of the junction, this section of the A832 comes to an end on the A835. The junction has changed little over the last century or so, except that the road to the east which was once the driveway into the Brahan Estate has been completely rebuilt and is now the much extended A835. This means that whilst the A832 one turned a right angle here, from the bridge to head west to Contin, it now comes to a give way line, and is forced to multiplex west with the A835. Whilst a wide, divided bellmouth is provided, there is no right turn lane on the A835, such is the change in traffic flows. The A835 now provides the direct route between Inverness and Ullapool, a role formerly filled by the somewhat more meandering A832 from Contin to the old A9 at Muir of Ord.
