The Clachan Bridge
The Clachan Bridge
The Clachan Bridge links the west coast of the Scottish mainland with the Island of Seil. The bridge was originally designed by Thomas Telford and built between 1792 and 1793 by the engineer Robert Mylne. With a high arch, of roughly 22 metres (72 ft) span and about 12 metres (39 ft) above the bed of the channel, the bridge was designed to allow the passage of vessels of up to 40 tonnes (39 long tons) at high tide.

The bridge has become known as "The Bridge over the Atlantic" and now carries the B844.
