Archaeology Notes

NH54NE 21 568 453

An arched stone humped-backed bridge in the middle of an arable field, wide eough for a cart. It could be on a track between Wardlaw church and Drumchree, dwelling place of one of the cadet Fraser families. It probably crossed a stream from the now drained Conon Loch.

DE Coghill 1989.

Srp Note (21 March 2012)

This single-arched bridge carried a track (NH54NE 7) across a stream that has subsequently been filled in. The carriageway is approximately 7.2m long by 4.2m wide and rises about 1m above the level of the stream bed. The arch span measures 1.4m where visible.

The 1st edition of the OS 6-inch map (Inverness Mainland 1876, Sheet XI) depicts a few trees at this location and a watercourse which begins at the bridge and runs NE to meet the Newton Burn.
