Much further north, on the West Coast of Scotland, may be found the Bridge over the Atlantic.
Spanning a narrow inlet of the Atlantic Ocean it provides the only road access to Seil island, which is about 16 miles south of Oban on the West Coast of Scotland. The Bridge was built in 1791 by John Stevenson of Oban. It was commissioned by Lord Bredalbane, MacDougall of Ardencaple and the Easdale Slate Company, the latter having the biggest commercial interest in good simple traffic flow.
Being 40ft high with a 70ft span it is an intetresting bridge to drive over as you cannot see over the crest as you start up the slope.
