Carrbridge Packhorse Bridge

Carrbridge Packhorse Bridge

I came across this bridge by complete accident. I was making my way to Inverness and taking random roads as I went. One of the things about Scotland being so small is that it’s easy to take side routes to see random sights and not worry about being late. However, the lack of good cell service kind of sucks. Its much more difficult to navigate than I am used to dealing with.

This bridge was built in 1717 and was in use up till 1829. A huge flood called the Muckle Spate ruined the bridge and left it in the condition it is today. There are warnings to not climb on the bridge. Apparently it’s common for local kids and some tourists to jump off it. to me it looked like the water was way too shallow to jump off the bridge.

Growing up one of my biggest dreams was to explore the world. Honestly I never thought this would become reality. But at the end of 2014 I quit my job as a project manager to do just that. I sold most everything I own, packed up the remaining boxes in storage, and set out to see the world. My goals while traveling are to meet people everywhere I go, work on becoming a better photographer, and attempt to stay where the weather is not freezing. Along the way I am posting photos at Pixelbip.com and writing about my experiences at EarthToKeir.com
