The Cairngorms Trust is inviting applications after being donated structural steel to build a bridge by Crathie based Moxon Architects.

The structural steel will provide for a 15m span foot bridge or 7.5m light vehicle bridge.

Extended lengths could be considered with the purchase of additional steel.

The funding package includes architects drawings and transportation of the steel.

Roger Clegg, Cairngorms Trust chair, said: "The materials are currently in Deeside, however, other areas within the Cairngorms National Park boundaries will also be considered.

"The successful applicant will be required to work alongside the Cairngorms Trust to develop a campaign to raise the additional funds required for the installation of the bridge.

"This is a great opportunity to support improvements to the infrastructure in the national park and the trust looks forward to working with a community group on this project."

Nancy Chambers, Cairngorms Trust manager, said: “We are looking forward to working in partnership with another organisation to raise funds to build the bridge and to increase access for communities to our beautiful landscapes within the Cairngorms.”
