Grand Tour of Scotland: Scrabster to Ullapool #294

Day 8: 18 August 2019 ~Views of and around Kylesku Bridge

The Kylesku Bridge (officially known since 2019 by its Gaelic name Drochaid a’ Chaolais Chumhaing) is a distinctively curved concrete box girder bridge in north-west Scotland that crosses the Loch a’ Chàirn Bhàin in Sutherland.

The bridge is 275 meters (902 feet) long with a 79-meter-long main span. The bridge deck is at a height of 24 meters (79 ft) above high water to provide navigation for ships.[2]

The bridge deck is supported by V-shaped inclined piers, with eight inclined legs, in order to reduce the length of the main span.
