Circa 1745. Simple, single arched military road bridge. Coursed granite rubble. No parapet (1988).
This bridge was built on the Military Road from Blairgowrie to Fort George which was completed in 1749. Following periods of general unrest in the Highlands, the Government began under General Wade, a sequence of road building in the Highlands to allow better communications between the Government troops. The Blairgowrie to Fort George Road was established by his successor, William Caulfield.
