Possibly 18th century. Broad single segmentally-arched bridge over Yarrow Water. Squared and snecked rubble, voussoirs. Mutuled band at base of ashlar-coped parapet with curved approaches and rounded outer piers to W.

Statement of Interest

Early photographs show a semicircular timber balustrade at SW. Thought to have been built by General MacKay but probably a replacement of that earlier structure.
