The Bridge of Frew (also known as Kippen Bridge) is a modern 3-span concrete structure carrying the B822 across the River Forth some two kilometres north-east of the village of Kippen in west Stirlingshire. The two piers just about sit on the riverbanks, but teh extra spans allow for the river flooding when in spate. It carries a standard two-way carriageway with a narrow pavement on the downstream side only, set between metal railings for parapets. These are terminated by concrete pillars with large coping stones on their tops at each corner. It was built in the mid 1960s to replace an earlier 3-arched stone bridge erected in 1790.
