On this day: Skye Bridge Opened

Thursday, 16th October 2014 by

Scotlands' Skye Bridge opened on this day 19 years ago, physically linking the islands to the mainland for the first time and replacing a ferry which had run in various forms since the 17th century. Tolls to use the bridge were a source of great controversy until the bridge was bought out and toll srapped in 2004.
