The Laxford Bridge is a stone arch bridge that carries the A838 across the Laxford River north to Rhiconich and Durness.
The bridge was built about 1834 by the Dukes of Sutherland – the road from Lairg, one of the "destitution roads" built during the potato famine, not being completed until 1851. The bridge is a category B listed building. An army transporter crashed on the bridge in 2009 so damaging it that it had to be closed to traffic. Detours of at least 97 kilometres (60 miles) were required (off-road) and the additional distance by road was 160 kilometres (100 miles).
