Moss Bridge in Ullapool

Ullapool Bridge, also known as Moss Bridge crosses the Ullapool River to the north of the town. It is a concrete arch bridge, which appears to date from the 1990s. It sits in a curve in the road, which means that the deck has been built 3 lanes wide, with the inside lane surfaced with ridged paviors at pavement level to aid visibility. Whilst there is a substantial pavement on the western side, there is only a very narrow one opposite, and a metal footbridge sitting immediately to the west of the road bridge.

There was obviously an older structure to carry the road over the river. However, there is no obvious evidence for its precise location. There are a couple of small patches of masonry on the northern bank between the road and foot bridges, but these appear to be stabilisation rather than the remains of abutments. The road alignment suggests that the footbridge sits roughly on the site of the old road bridge, but is not conclusive.
