Cardross Bridge

Cardross Bridge is an 18th century 3-arched stone bridge carrying the B8034 across the River Forth just under 2 miles north of the village of Arnprior in west Stirlingshire. The bridge was constructed in 1774, and was predominantly paid for from the revenues of the forfeited estates. However, the Duke of Montrose reportedly contributed £21 pounds towards the cost.

The bridge is a three-span structure built from rubble stone with segmental arches and triangular cutwaters protecting the piers. The faces of the bridge are plain, although a pipe has somewhat unsympathetically been attached to one side. It carries a single track road, without pavement, which is slightly humped as it crosses the bridge. Although they look old and damaged, the parapets were apparently reconstructed in c1972.
