An early 19th century bridge with a single segmental arch, carrying one of the drives of the estate SE-NW across the Doghouse Burn. It is built of droved ashlar with a convex-coped parapet which terminates at each end with short swept wing walls with scrolled ends. The bridge is part of the landscape development of Buchanan Castle estate. The policies of Buchanan Castle are included in the Inventory of Gardens and Designed Landscapes in Scotland (Vol. 4, 291).

Statement of Interest

There are three other similar bridges on the estate, two single arch and one triple arch. (see separate listings).

Buchanan Castle Estate was held the Buchanans from the 13th century until it was bought by the 3rd Marquis (later Duke) in 1682. In 1724 the earlier dwelling was demolished and a large new house constructed. Over the next 130 years, the house and its surrounding estate underwent several periods of alteration and development, culminating in the construction of Buchanan Castle in 1852.
