Bridgescapes: a journey through Scotland’s bridge-building heritage

a talk by L. Bruce Keith

Craigellachie Bridge

Bruce is a surveyor and environmentalist, having started his professional career working on several Perthshire estates with the Department of Agriculture. His interest in bridges stems from his
childhood, from his father, who was a local authority engineer responsible for bridges in the Highlands of Scotland. His passion for Scottish history, geography and landscapes continues. Publication of his fully illustrated book of the same title as our talk coincided with the completion of the tremendous new cable-stayed design Queensferry Crossing. Bridges closer to home in Moray will also be covered in his talk. Join us at Elgin Museum’s first event to celebrate Year of Coasts and Waters 2020.

This bookable event gives you a unique opportunity to explore the Moray Coastal Trail around Clashach Quarry with visiting palaeontologists. Come and see old sand dunes and view the footprints that animals older than the dinosaurs left behind.
A free return coach trip from the Museum to the quarry access road is provided. This trip involves walking over uneven ground and sensible footwear (preferably boots) must be worn. Please bring waterproofs and a snack/drink if you wish.

The Museum will be open in the afternoon (12.00 pm – 4.00 pm) so that you can see our temporary exhibition “At the Water’s Edge” alongside our displays of fossil fish and reptiles from the local area.
