Kessock Bridge

The Kessock Bridge (Gaelic: Drochaid Cheasaig) is a cable stayed bridge which carries the A9 trunk road across the Beauly Firth, an inlet of the Moray Firth, between Inverness and the village of North Kessock.

The Category B listed LinkExternal link bridge has a total length of 1,056 metres with a main span of 240 metres. It is raised high over sea level because the Beauly Firth is a navigable waterway. The four bridge towers dominate the Inverness skyline, especially at night when they are lit. Construction on the bridge began in 1976, with completion and opening in 1982. Prior to 1982, travellers north of Inverness had the choice of the Kessock Ferry or a journey via Beauly.
