Here's the bridge across the Atlantic. Cute, isn't it? I know exactly where the bridge is - but that's only because I've driven over it (twice) and it has helpful signposts proudly saying this way to the 'Bridge over the Atlantic'.

But I'm not going to say where it is - because I want to let other IA'ers have a decent crack at finding the answer. One thing I will say is....you'll all be very very surprised by where you'll find this natty little bridge!

Go straight to the top of the class, Ecollen!  In Argyle it it is.

And here are two little known side facts - the cosy little Clachan bridge over the Atlantic in Argyle was designed well over 220 years ago by none other than that great man himself, Thomas Telford.

But the really bad news is that, as any reader of the Scotsman newspaper can tell you, this beautiful little bridge has cost the Isle of Seil the best part of half a million in subsidies and grants.  That's because despite the Isle of Seil having been linked by the bridge to the Argyle mainland for the past 226 years (since 1792 in fact) the government body that decides these things has suddenly decided the Isle of Seil is actually no longer an island and deserves no island subsidies.

Things obviously grind exceedingly slowly in Scotland. I think Scotland deserves Independence!
