Perth Bridge (Smeaton's Bridge) Floodlit
Perth Bridge, also known as Smeaton's Bridge, is the only one of Perth's three bridges over the River Tay, to be floodlit at night.

The bridge was built by John Smeaton, architect of the Eddystone Lighthouse. It was completed in 1771 and has withstood many floods since then. Increasing traffic during the nineteenth century resulted in the bridge being widened in 1869.
