Old Stone Bridge, Inverness

Photograph of a sketch of the old Stone Bridge in Inverness. In the middle of the sketch can be seen women washing laundry in the River Ness.

Built in 1685, the Stone Bridge had seven arches and was said to have been partly built of stone from a demolished fort, erected by Oliver Cromwell when his soldiers were based in Inverness. In the bridge's third pier, a vault was built to be used as a prison, measuring only six feet in height and covering an area of ten feet by seven feet. The Stone bridge was carried away by the great flood of 1849
