Spean Bridge


Highland

A village in Lochaber to the east of the Great Glen, Spean Bridge lies on the River Spean 3 miles (5 km) east of the foot of Loch Lochy. A bridge over the river designed by Thomas Telford was erected in 1819 and a road up Glen Spean was subsequently built. A monument erected in 1952 a mile (1.5 km) west of Spean Bridge commemorates the commandos who trained in the area during the Second World War.
