Statement of Interest

Murdostoun Bridge crosses the South Calder which divided the Murdostoun Estate from the Allanton estate. The river is also the parish boundary so Murdostoun Castle is listed under Shotts parish. Equidistant between the Allanton estate village of Bonkle and Murdostoun Castle. The bridge was probably built by the Stewarts of Allanton, stylistically it is similar to the triple span Allanton House bridge (see separate listing). The date of 1817 matches many of the cottages in Bonkle, the Allanton estate village whereas the Murdostoun estate was unoccupied at this time.
