Lornty Bridge [NAT]

OS 1:10,000 map, 1978.

Lornty Bridge is a modern bridge which measures 4.3m in width and which incorporates the arches of two earlier bridges. One of these older bridges was probably military with an estimated width of 3.2m and the earlier bridge estimated as being 2.3m wide. The latter, built of well-dressed rectangular blocks is traditionally reported to be of Roman origin. There is, however, no evidence of Roman roads N of the River Tay.

Visited by OS (AA) 30 April 1974.

Inf: G Maxwell, RCAHMS, 1990.

This bridge carries an unclassified public road or track across the Lornty Burn.

Information from RCAHMS (RJCM), 16 December 1996.

Architecture Notes

A small single-arch random-rubble bridge built on the line of former Military Road, but re-built to incorporate a concete culvert on its W side in the 1990s.
