View of Inverness Castle from River Ness

Date is a guess. Nice old bridge, and soooooo much more handsome than the current one. Note the gables of the building behind the bridge. This no longer stands, and in its place is a boxy 1960s monstrosity.

100 Years Ago - the projected new road & embankment at the east end of the old bridge between Tolmie Castle & the river is contracted for & will be formed without delay. When completed it will be a most striking improvement

I believe that the Tomlies were a family from the MacLeods of Dunvegan. The were tacks men for the Chief and had Uiginish Lodge opposite the castle. They are written about in a book called "Four sons of Skye". They left Scotland for New Zealand where there people can still be found.
