The bridge across the River Righ at Inchree clearly dates from the 1930s reconstruction of the A82. However, there must have been a bridge here before it was constructed, as it is marked on old maps, and a ford would have been mentioned in the old travel guides. In all probability the old bridge lay immediately to the north of the current one, possibly at a slightly squint angle as the road that now leads into Glen Righ follows the old alignment of the A82.

The existing bridge is a concrete structure of four spans, although the outer spans only cross the river in times of flood. The parapets are similar to others on the A82 route, albeit with much chunkier pillars over the piers than is normal. In Spring 2016 plans were revealed to build a parallel foot / cycle bridge on the upstream side of the bridge to accommodate the latest section of NCN78 to be built, from the Ballachulish Bridge to the Corran Ferry. This, therefore, will lie on the assumed line of the older bridge at this site.
