Cardross Bridge is an 18th century 3-arched stone bridge carrying the B8034 across the River Forth some 1.9 miles (3.1 kilometres) north of the village of Arnprior in west Stirlingshire.

The bridge was constructed in 1774, a three-span rubble bridge with segmental arches and triangular cutwaters. The Duke of Montrose contributed £21 pounds towards the cost. The parapet was reconstructed circa 1972.
