Old Photograph Mill and Bridge Trinafour Perthshire Scotland
Old photograph of the Mill, and the bridge which spans the Errochty Water by Trinafour, Perthshire, Scotland. General Wade was responsible for a number of military roads in the Scottish Highlands, one of the most important routes being that from Crieff to Inverness. It is on this road that the old bridge at Trinafour lies. The bridge itself is a single stone arch, with a substantial buttress on the south east corner.
Tour Scotland Winter video of a drive West on the B847 narrow road to Trinafour on ancestry, genealogy, visit to Highland Perthshire, Scotland. The B847 road begins about 3 miles west of Blair Atholl and heads west, along the old A9 route, passing under the new route of that road followed by the railway and then enters the small village of Calvine. From Calvine the old road heads South, simultaneously passing under the railway and over the River Garry. The road then starts its journey West up Glen Errochty, a sparsely populated Scottish glen. The road often passes through trees, with the river hidden from view even when it is just a few yards away. After about 3 miles the road takes avoiding action at the entrance to Auchleeks House, again hidden behind trees, and then the small village of Trinafour appears ahead. This is where the B847 briefly follows the route of General Wade's military road. The route is picked up just across Trinafour Bridge, with Wade's old bridge accessible by foot a short distance uphill.
