Archaeology Notes

NO18NW 2 14778 86466

This bridge, which carries the military road over the Clunie Water, measures 15' 4" between its parapets and is 100 ft long. It has two segmental arches and a parapet measuring some 2' 10" in height. Structure details are obscured by heavy pointing, but the arches and central pier are probably original. Due to affinities with Invercauld Old Bridge, a date of c.1752 is suggested for this bridge.

A Graham 1966.
