Greig Street Bridge, Inverness

Greig Street Bridge, Inverness (must see)

The Greig Street Bridge is a pedestrian footbridge that crosses the River Ness. The Greig Street Bridge can be reached from Bank Street on the east side of the river or Huntly Street to the West.

The suspension bridge was completed in 1881 by civil engineer C. Manners. It is made of two side spans that are 67 feet and a central span of 201 feet. The total distance of the bridge is 335 feet long.

The bridge has warren trusses with handrails that pedestrians can use as they pass over the river. Some of the most notable features of the bridge are the ornamental towers on each side. The towers use latticework to create a unique visage that makes the bridge as attractive to view from far away as up close.

Visitors should also take note of the arches beneath the towers. Though they are functional, they also form the perfect frame for a photo on the bridge with the Free North Church in the distance.
