Statement of Scheduling

Invercauld Bridge and road are of national importance as one of the best examples of this important class of bridge, and along with it a stretch of contemporary military road. Both can provide information on the architectural and engineering skills of the 18th-century army, and have a place in national history as part of the first coherent road network to cover the northern part of the country.
