Old Bonar Bridge 2

This is the structure that was built to replace the original bridge swept away by a flood in 1892. (See picture #41). It in turn was relaced by the current bridge.

Comments:
When this bridge was demolished my Dad (David Mackenzie, Accountant Bonar Bridge) salvaged some of the huge granite blocks (most of which were being dumped or simply pushed into the river) and used them to build a large wall at the back of our house: Craigvar, on Dornoch Road. My brother John now lives there and those blocks aren't going anywhere fast!
