History

From Natural History – the results of glaciation can be seen in the hills around Nethy , as well as along the banks of the River Spey.

Through early human history – Pictish Symbol Stones, Chambered Cairns and Stone Circles can be found not too far away.

To medieval history Castle Roy is on Nethy’s doorstep, which was built by the Comyns and then taken over by the Clan Grant.

And more recent history ( but still 200+ years ago) the 4 Thomas Telford bridges in the village, all built of local stone, spanning the River Nethy; the Aultmore and Duack Burns and a water course on the Abernethy Golf Course.

Then there is industrial history with the importance of working the timber reserves of the Abernethy Forest

Nethy Bridge has a long, fascinating story to tell, click onto the entries below to find out more.
