Greig Street Bridge is a footbridge across the River Ness located in Inverness, Scotland. It is a suspension bridge built in 1880–1 by the civil engineer C. Manners in conjunction with the Rose Street Foundry for a cost of £1,400.[1]

It is composed of two side spans of 20.4 metres (67 ft) and a central span of 61.3 metres (201 ft).[2] The bridge has warren trusses with an additional railing for pedestrian safety.[2] The cables were replaced in 1952, as were the anchorages in 1989.[2]
