This bridge carries the B7024 public road over the River Doon to the S of Ayr. The river here forms the boundary between the parishes of Ayr (to the NE) and Maybole (to the SW).

The location assigned to this record defines the midpoint of the structure. The available map evidence suggests that it extends from NS c. 33137 17928 to NS c. 33166 17950.
