Snow on the Suspension Footbridge (2)
Snow on the Suspension Footbridge (2)
This foot-bridge over the River Tummel linking Pitlochry with the hamlet of Port na Craig, the Tummel Suspension Bridge was built in 1913 to replace the Port na Craig ferry which had crossed the river since the 12th century. The bridge is supported by steel ropes suspended from a lattice-girder towers on each bank and lateral cables were attached much later to reduce the oscillation created in use. The total cost of construction was 850, raised in part by public subscription and attracting a grant of 250 from the Highland District Committee. The bridge was dedicated to the memory of Lt. Colonel George Glas Sandeman of Fonab and opened by Katherine Murray, the Marchioness of Tulliebardine on Empire Day, 1913.
