|Cannich Bridge • Comar Bridge|
Struy Bridge on the A831 carries the road across the River Farrar at Struy. The bridge, and indeed the road were originally built by Thomas Telford as part of his commission on Highland roads and bridges as the Strathglass road.
The bridge consists of 5 arches, the central one being the largest and diminishing in size to the banks. Only the three middle arches normally span the river, with the outer arches crossing the banks on either side - that to the north obscured by trees and bushes. The piers have triangular cutwaters to both sides, which continue between the arches as slim pilasters to the top of the parapets, crossing a string course which crosses above the arches. The roadway is single carriageway with grass verges throughout, and is slightly humped due to the larger central arch. However, as it is set on a straight road this does not particularly impede forward visibility.
