Long Description:

This wooden footbridge can be found in Glen Coe in the west highlands of Scotland, carrying the Coire nan Lochan path over the River Coe.

Coire nan Lochan runs south-westwards between two of the Three Sisters of Glen Coe, three rocky buttresses that protrude into the south side of the famed glen. It runs between the central sister, Geàrr Aonoch, and the most westerly Aonoch Dubh, with a path running up the eastern side of the corrie en-route to the high mountains that lie on the southern side of the glen.

From one of the large lay-bys that lie on the southern side of the A82 road, the path drops down to cross the River Coe, crossing it by a wooden footbridge, before the climb into the corrie. The footbridge is around thirty feet long, and was constructed by the National Trust for Scotland, along the path trail, the National Trust owning most of the land in the glen.
