rrø. greatest engineering feat, perhaps, ever attempted in the Highlands is the railway bridge now in course of construction over Loch Etive, at the Falls of Lora. When completed, its span of 500ft. will be the second largest in Europe, coming next to that of the Forth Bridge. Sir J. Wolfe Barry, K.C.B., Westminster, is the designer; and the entire super- j structure will be of steel. In deference to represen- tations made by the local district committee of the Argyll County Council, an access for foot paasengein will be provided accross the bridge. This pleasing fact will involve the abolition of the ferry at ConneL The structure forms part of the Connel and Balls- chulish extension of the Callanderand Oban Railway. Y. This short line possesses the distinction of crossing, in its course, two arms of the sea-Loch Etive and Loch Creran. Within 12 miles of the Falls of Lora I is the island of Seil, which was, although probably very few people are aware of the fact, the first island I in Great. Britain to be connected with the mainland by a bridge. This ancient structure, which consists of a single-stone arch, is still absolutely flawless and I substantial, and affords the only means of road com- I munication with the island.
