The Bridge, Thurso

This five-arched bridge over the River Thurso was designed by the engineers Macbey & Gordon and completed in 1887. It replaced a bridge that dated from the early 19th century.

Situated on the Pentland Firth in the sheltered Thurso Bay, Thurso is the most northerly town on the Scottish mainland. Thurso is a long established town with origins dating back to Viking times when it was an important Norse settlement and the major gateway to mainland Scotland.
