Victoria Bridge

(Penny Bridge)

A pedestrian suspension bridge which crosses the River Spey at Aberlour (Moray), the Victoria Bridge is also known as the Penny Bridge, owing the toll that was once charged to cross. At 87.5m (287 feet) this is said to be the second longest pedestrian suspension bridge in Scotland. Built in 1902 by iron-founders James Abernethy & Co. of Aberdeen, the bridge is now A-listed. It comprises a lattice-girder span suspended from steel ropes which are supported on lattice-girder pylons.
