New Bridge for Strathdon

After consultation the Strathdon Community were keen to see the Strathdon Bridge re-instated across the River Don; linking settlements on the south side of the River Don to the Lonach Hall, a community hub. The bridge has also encouraged members of the community to use the quieter back road south of the river from Strathdon/Bellabeg to the Hall rather than walking on the main road. The project was funded by the Scottish Government via the Cairngorms National Park Authority.
