Gleann Taitneach Bridge Down

gleann-taitneach-bridge

The bridge spanning the river in Gleann Taitneach (NO 088723), north-west of Spittal of Glenshee, is currently out of use. The wooden deck has gone, rendering the crossing unusable.

It is thought that part of the deck was washed out while the remainder was removed by the landowner, the Invercauld Estate, in the interests of safety. The bridge offered a useful link for walkers following core paths up Gleann Taitneach, across to Glen Lochsie and then back down the Dalmunzie House driveway, a circuit that is now only possible for those brave enough to wade across a stretch of river with no natural crossing points.

The Cairngorm National Park Authority is aware of the issue and is currently liaising with the estate on its plans for a replacement.
