Bridges over the River Tay and Isla

If you park at the big layby by the Meikleour Beech Hedge you can take the short walk across a field to get a different perspective of two bridges, one spans the River Isla and the other spans the River Tay just before both waterways meet.  The rivers were quite low today so it was easy to walk underneath the bridges.  The Kinclaven Bridge over the Tay now has traffic lights on them so it is easy to walk across without fear of being crushed by a vehicle as it  was quite 'tight' before especially when a lorry and car met.

 An ancient beech tree, a sad victim of our hurricanes.
 The River Isla on the left collides with the mighty River Tay on the right.

When you think about it these bridges are an amazing piece of engineering, especially with the increased volume of traffic and HGV's in our modern world.
