Kessock Bridge, Inverness

A significant road bridge carrying the A9 Trunk Road across the narrow strait between the Moray and Beauly Firths, the Kessock Bridge links Inverness with North Kessock on the Black Isle. It was modelled on a bridge over the River Rhine near Dusseldorf and has a span of 1052m (1150 yards). Work began in 1976 and the bridge was opened in 1982. An image of the bridge appeared on £100 banknotes first issued by the Bank of Scotland in 2007.
