This bridge was right behind where we stayed at Cromwell Court. The kids loved scrambling up and down it. It was a really neat old bridge with lots of history.

This takes 2 minutes to see, but is a nice cute old bridge that is worth stopping to see. Nothing to do with Oliver Cromwell as you'll find out when you read the sign, but still fun to see anyway.

To be clear, this bridge is not named for Oliver Cromwell! It is a version of a local Gaelic saying that has been adapted over time. Beautiful image over a little River. Walking distance from the village center. Great for pictures .
