This view shows the bridge from the south east. The construction is obvious; octagonal piers supporting longitudinal and transverse beams, with a slab deck and parapets. The position of the opening span is indicated by the box pier towards the middle. This bridge was bypassed in the late 1980s, and dismantled in 1991. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
