The weak, narrow bridge warning omits rather an important detail. The road and thebridge areon the other side of the Kyle of Durness, across 1/3 mile of water, and there's no vehicle ferry. Presumably the military have some means or other for crossing when they wish to use the NATO range.

Tourists take the passenger ferry, shown below, which takes9 passengers at a time, followed by an 11-mile minibus ride to the Cape & the lighthouse at the most northerly point of mainland Britain.

It was a very pleasant trip that day a couple of weeks ago, surrounded by the glorious scenery, but I fear it may be excessively exciting in the more usual weather in that part of the world.

Alan,

This is the first time I've seen a sign exhorting a weak bridge. Besdies if you're corect the warning does come a bit early. I guess they figure it's best to give early warnings.

Thanks for sharing.
