Bonar Bridge in Sutherland

This postcard shows the iron bridge built by Thomas Telford, at Bonar Bridge in Sutherland. It was erected in 1811-1812, but was washed away in the floods of 1892. It was replaced by a structure designed by William Arrol. The Bonar Bridge we see today was built in 1973.

Bonar Bridge village is situated on a strip of land between the Kyle of Sutherland and the Dornoch Firth. Referred to as just 'Bonar' until the erection of the first bridge across the Kyle of Sutherland, the village developed with the coming of the railway in 1864. Hotels and a golf course were created in response to demand from tourists
