April 6, 2018: Jubilee Bridge, Loch Linnhe


Jubilee Bridge is situated in the village of Appin, Argyll, in the magnificent coastal scenery on the West Highlands of Scotland.  It is in the very heart of Clan Stewart countryside majestically overlooking Castle Stalker in Loch Linnhe with the mountains of Morvern in the background.

Jubilee Bridge 2

This iconic structure is a 19 span timber footbridge first built in 1897 to commemorate the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Victoria and used originally to provide access between two local churches - and a welcome shortcut for the postie.  It is described on the internet as "a little rickety footbridge".   Rebuilt and reconstructed many times it is a popular well known symbol of the community loved and well used by local people and attracting tourists from all over the world to this beautiful part of Scotland.

The approach paths to the bridge provide the only access to the rich biodiversity of the area.   It is a focus for walkers and cyclists who come to this area to see some of the finest scenery in Scotland.

(Parked up for lunch)

We came across this region after having photographed Castle Stalker. We parked up for a break in Port Appin, then went exploring. Walking across the bridge and around the bay brought us back to the Castle! Lovely place.
