Description

Early 19th century incorporating remains of earlier bridge. Broad single deep segmental arch bridge over Turret Burn. Narrow dressed squared rubble bands with large voussoirs and broad flat-coped parapet.

Statement of Interest

Formerly a drover's road from the Western Isles, "For cattle from Skye and most of the Outer Isles the route across the western edge of the Moor of Rannoch led them easily to Crieff by Loch Tay and Loch Earn" or from Argyll via "Glen Dochart and Loch Earn". By the end of the 17th century Crieff was the "greatest cattle market in Scotland" (Haldane). A Priest's walk is built into the western approach of the extant bridge with only the south entrance remaining in the garden of nearby West March.
