Dulnain Bridge


A hamlet in Strathspey, Highland Council Area, Dulnain Bridge lies near the junction of the River Dulnain with the River Spey, 2 miles (3 km) southwest of Grantown-on-Spey. A bridge, rebuilt in 1791, was first built in 1754 on the military road between Forres and Corgarff. Swept away by the Moray flood of 1829, the second bridge was replaced in 1830 by Joseph Mitchell. The settlement later developed in association with tourism. A 19th-century shooting lodge at Muckrach, a half-mile (1 km) to the west, later became a hotel. Nearby Muckrach Castle was once derelict, but was restored to habitation in the 1980s.

Just to the east of Dulnain Bridge are particularly well developed examples of Roches Moutonnees, rocky hillocks shaped by the passage of glaciers in ancient times.
