The Clunie Bridge Pitlochry

Misty Morning
I took this picture on a misty Sunday morning while I was attending Dougie MacLean's Perthshire Amber Folk Festival.

The footbridge crosses the River Tummel and was built about 1950 - it replaced an old road bridge that was lost when Hydro Electric built the reserviour and dam here. It is a suspension bridge so will sway while you cross - not great for those of us affected by balance issues.

If you are wondering about the name - it seems to relate to the land ownership at the time the first bridge was built in the 18th century. Clunie itself can date back to a pictish clan.
