Bridge over the Atlantic

Clachan Bridge links the island of Seil to the mainland. Seil lies on the east side of the Firth of Lorn, south of Oban. The original design of the bridge was for two arches but this was modified to one arch when it was built by Robert Mylne in 1792. Clachan Bridge is also commonly known as The Bridge Over the Atlantic and is in the care of Historic Scotland.
