Suspension Bridge at The Islands, Inverness

The suspension bridge in Inverness, linking the town to the Ness Islands, was one of two bridges built in 1853-1854 to the designs of William Dredge. These bridges replaced two earlier constructions which were swept away in the great floods of 1849.

The lade (water channel), which can be seen at the bottom right of the photograph, once supplied Inverness Gas and Water Company's steam-powered pumping station
