  • We stopped here for a quick pit stop on our NC500 route. Just stunning scenery. Couldn’t resist getting a pic of our campervan driving across! Lovely place to stop and admire the view.

  • Great views. A large car park. There's often a good burger van parked in the lay by. It offered fish and vegan food too. The only downside? The number of mobile homes that park up over night then...

  • We parked for the night in lower parking area, very quiet considering near beneath bridge. Fabulous views. And woke to see this beauty staring at us. WOW! Touring in motorhome doing NC500.
  • There's parking both sides of the bridge. Views are better on the side heading towards Kylestrome. That said there are public toilets if you need them at the other car park. The lochs in both directions are beautiful and there's a pathway so you can walk safely across the bridge if you wish. We saw seals in the area and took some lovely photos. A definite stop off point if in the area.
