    Wade's Bridge is five-arch bridge crossing the River Tay at Aberfeldy, Perth and Kinross, Scotland. A Category A listed structure built in 1733,[1] to a design by William Adam, it carries the pedestrian and vehicle traffic of Poplar Avenue.[2] Erected for the Board of Ordnance, to the order of Lieutenant General George Wade, its original purpose was as a military road linking the garrisons at Ruthven, Fort George, Fort Augustus and Fort William.[3]

    The stone was quarried, cut and tooled at nearby Bolfracks. In 1932, two tablets with copies of Wade's original inscriptions were let into the stonework of two obelisk plinths; one in English and one in Latin. These state that the bridge was begun in April 1733 and finished by January; however, this is not strictly true, as General Wade stopped work for the winter, leaving the bridge without parapets over the side arches. These were added the following year.[2]

    A local monument and the view from it.
    This is Burton Pynsent and is a monument built by William Pitt to honour Sir William Pynsent in 1767.
    Pynsent was grateful to Pitt for opposing a ten shilling tax on a hogshead of cider (1763 Cider Bill), which would have affected his business, so on his death he left his entire estate to Pitt.[6][7] Pitt then used some of the income from the estate (£3000 per annum) to erect the monument to his benefactor.

    Photos were taken on 27th Jan, a bright clear sunny day!
