Statement of Interest

There was a medieval bridge at Boat of Brig built by Muriel

de Polloc, the tolls supporting the hospital of St Nicholas

site nearby. Bridge re-placed by ferry-boat. Suspension

bridge designed and executed by Captain Samuel Brown RN,

opened 3 December, 1830; together with the tollhouse, it was

financed by Col Grant of Grant (Seafield Estates), Mr Richard

Wharton Duff of Orton and Mr P Steuart of Auchlunkart.

'Remarkably handsome' tollhouse where 'very moderate pontage'

was collected.

Tollhouse of unusually grandoise design.

Suspension bridge superseded by present bridge in 1952.
