The bridge carrying the B970 across the River Spey at Ruthven is rather unusual in the grand scheme of things, but in good company on the River Spey. The bridge consists of three spans, two crossing the twin channels of the river, and one across the low lying land on the southern end. The bridge is built of metal, with three U-shaped trusses spanning between the stone piers.
The longest bridge of the causeway from Kingussie to Ruthven
To the north of the bridge, the road from Kingussie crosses the wide floodlands of the river. This involves crossing areas of meandering creeks on the muddy floodplain, and so a series of low concrete 'bridges' have been constructed to try and prevent the floodwaters washing the roads causeway away. These consist of four, five and then a single low square arch across the creeks.
