Spean Bridge (Scottish Gaelic: Drochaid Aonachain) is a village, in the Highland region of Scotland.
The village takes its name from the bridge over the River Spean on General Wade's military road between Fort William and Fort Augustus, and not from Telford's bridge of 1819 which carries the A82 over the River Spean, at the heart of the village.
Lying in the Great Glen, Spean Bridge has transport links north towards Inverness and south to Fort William, provided by the A82, and the A86 heads east to join the A9 at Kingussie. The village is served by the Spean Bridge railway station providing links to London, and between 1903 and 1933 it offered a branch line service to Fort Augustus.
Based at Achnacarry, Commandos and United States Army Rangers were trained in the area around the village between 1942 and 1945.
