Description

Circa 1827. Single elliptical arch bridge with further small flood arch to N; dressed, squared and coursed rubble with flat ashlar coping. Inset panels to outer sides, that to E from previous bridge on this site.

Statement of Interest

This and the earlier bridge were both erected by the Malcolms of Balbedie. The E facing panel was described in 1927 as "a panel containing a scrolled cartouche bearing: A saltire (?) between four unicorns? heads couped: below the cartouche are a label and what seems to be a 17th century date. The cartouche is surmounted by a second label. On the west side of the bridge another panel has been inserted, apparently inscribed but indecipherable from the river bank".
