Kylesku Bridge

The Kylesku Bridge is a distinctively curved award-winning concrete box girder bridge in north-west Scotland that crosses the Loch a' Chàirn Bhàin in Sutherland.

In June 1978 the Highland Regional Council asked Ove Arup & Partners Scotland to prepare a feasibility study for a bridge, in their capacity as consulting civil engineers, and was prepared by March 1979. The bridge design included a high level deck due to the steep slopes of the water passage.

The bridge is 275 metres (902 feet) long with a 79 metre long main span. The bridge deck is at a height of 24 metres (78 feet). The bridge deck is supported by V-shaped inclined piers (eight inclined columns).
