According to most reports this bridge dates from the 1830's when it was built to replaced the original military bridge.

That two arch bridge built by Major Caulfield or Caulfeild was washed away in The Muckle Spate of Aug 3rd-4th 1829 when the flood levels topped 15 yards in some places.

The bridge fell into disuse when the line of the new Inverness Perth parliamentary road moved about 3k downstream to cross the river at Carrbridge around 1834.

Repairs to the bridge with funds from Highland council and Sustrans saw it reopen on the 26th of June 2002 and it now forms part of the cycle and walking route north between Perth and Inverness.
