Tummel Bridge Information

Tummel Bridge lies on the River Tummel at the western end of Loch Tummel.

Looking upstream towards the Old Tummel Bridge

Tummel Bidge lies at the head of Loch Tummel, is a village famous for its high arched stone bridge built by General Wade in 1733. It has been replaced by a less modern one which has the appearance of a temporary structure. Loch Tummel is smaller and less dramatic than Rannoch, yet incredibly beautiful and entirely Highland. There is a road on each side, the northern much the faster to traverse, and more scenic in that it rises higher and gives wider vistas, especially of Schiehallion to the south-west.
