Crossings related to the A920

Set in sparsely populated country just a couple of miles east of Dufftown, the Bridge of Auchindoun crosses the River Fiddich just before the river swings to the south, and the final crossing at Bridgehaugh.

The Old Bridge

The old bridge, hidden in trees

The old bridge across the River Fiddich is a single span stone arch, typical of those found in the area. The level roadway and parapets (as opposed to a hump-backed profile) suggests an early 19th century date, but little more is known and as the bridge now lies within the grounds of a private property further investigation is not possible.

The New Bridge

Constructed since the original listing of the old bridge in 1971, the new Auchindoun Bridge is again a single span, albeit this time a concrete deck. When constructed it would have carried the B9014 route, but this has subsequently been swapped with the A920, so it is now the latter road that crosses the bridge.
