Polla Bridge is a crossing of the Amhainn an t-Stratha Beag on the A838 at the head of Loch Erribol, a sea loch that the road goes around. The stone bridge, which consists of two stone arches to span the watercourse, was built in the 1830s as part of road upgrades along the north coast of Sutherland by the Duke of Sutherland and replaced a ford situated approximately 500 metres upstream.

It has been a category C listed structure since 1987.
