Red Road to Lanark
« on: Thursday 11 January 18 15:45 GMT (UK) »
I came across this photo online and searched for its exact location without luck. The link for the map listed is broken as well. Does anyone know where this exact location is. Beautiful location! Thank you.

The map link worked for me - https://www.trekearth.com/mapcity.php?mtype=e&lat=36401126&long=-2417977

But here's a Google map link to Streetview - https://goo.gl/maps/eJeq8fasiVq

Great bridge, the red roads of Lanarkshire, superb in the headlights on a wet night!

Here's a Highland bridge, General Wade's 2 arched Garva Bridge over the Spey,  built 1730's.

Bonnie Prince Charlie & his army crossed the Garva Bridge in 1745 on their way south. General Cope had planned to cross heading north & nip the Rebellion in the bud but hearing the Highlanders were already over the Corrieyairack & nearly on him he about turned & skedaddled!  ;D
