Itís a mountain pass that was an old military road hundred of years ago

Would that be General Wade built that road? The bridge at Aberfeldy that I believe he built is quite impressive, walked over it many times 'cos pub tutha side is only one in the locality that sells real ale, but boy they know how to charge for it.
