Rather interesting Craigellachie facts

Did you know the bridge at Craigellachie is the oldest iron bridge in Scotland? Completed by Thomas Telford in 1814 it was of a radical new design, its cast-iron arch far shallower than would be possible with masonry structures. Made from high-tensile material it is still used by pedestrians and cyclists – it was the sharp turn at one end rather than wear-and-tear that ended its use by vehicles.
