Deerhounds cross the Atlantic

Here’s I am at quite an extraordiary structure. A bridge that crosses the Atlantic Ocean. Yes that’s correct the bridge over the Atlantic, the lovely old humpbacked Clachan Bridge. Built in 1792 by John Stevenson from the Oban area, legend has it that on completion, a horse pulling a cartload of hay was sent across the bridge to test its strength. (With additional strengthening, today, forty ton trucks cross it without concern.) The rare Fairy Foxglove (Erinus alpinus) covers the bridge in a gentle purple haze in the early summer, further enhancing an already beautiful structure.

For a bit of fun, when not exercising the hounds, here is a little Jigsaw featuring the Bridge over the Atlantic to Seil Island for you to enjoy and to waste time with. If you wish to enjoy other Scottish Landscape Jigsaw puzzles - simply click the link.
