20 Glen Shiel Bridge in Scottish Highlands, Scotland

This charming, stone-arched bridge was built over the River Shiel in 1815 by architect Thomas Telford. About 100 years before, this was the site of the Battle of Glen Shiel. On June 10, 1719, British troops clashed with Jacobites. They were rebels who wanted to restore King James II and VII to the throne of England, Ireland and Scotland. The three-hour skirmish resulted in a crushing defeat of the Jacobites and their Spanish allies.
