The Bridge of Haughs is a small bridge over the Burn of Haughs on the western edge of Keith. It is also the westerly of the two junctions between the A95 and the A96, which multiplex eastwards into the town.

Bridge

The bridge is a single arch structure with modern concrete rendered parapets spanning the small stream. Below the parapets, the bridge appears to have stone facings. Although a close examination has not been made it seems unlikely that a stone arch was originally built to the full width of the current road, so it is possible that either the bridge has been widened at some point or the stone facing is decorative.

Junction

The A96 crosses the bridge and immediately turns sharp left to run alongside the burn into Keith. To the right, the A95 heads south west to Craigellachie and Speyside. The junction is a simple T junction, with a small island in the middle of the A95. It would appear, however, that the curvature of the junction has been subtly changes, and what was once a right angle bend has been eased a fraction by pushing both roads south eastwards into the steep tree covered bank. This has eased the turn for the large number of lorries that travel the road each day.
