Official opening for Bracklinn Falls bridge

Bracklin Falls bridge The bridge replaces the original one which was washed away in August 2004

A new bridge over one of Scotland's best-known waterfalls has been officially opened.

The £110,000 bridge over Bracklinn Falls, Callander, was built to replace the one washed away by floods in 2004.

The timber and copper structure was completed in October but closed to the public until now.

Loch Lomond National Park said the bridge would deliver "real economic benefits" to the local area while respecting the natural environment.

National Park convener Mike Cantlay said: "If ever we need a reminder of the impact climate change is causing to our environment, the destruction of the original bridge back in 2004 is a monumental example.

"The rising water caused by flash floods had a devastating impact on site and on the community. I'm delighted that we now have this stunning viewpoint back once again."
