Crossings related to the B705

Catrine Bridge is a wide two arch stone bridge carrying the B705 across the River Ayr in Catrine village. The central pier sits in the riverbed, protected by small rounded cut waters, although the river seems to mainly flow through the eastern arch except when it is in spate. The bridge carries a wide carriageway, with two lanes and parking bays on the north side between wide pavements, as befits a bridge in the centre of a village. The structure is built from coursed local red sandstone, rubble faced on the outside but the inside of the parapets is cut smooth. Otherwise there seems to be no real decoration to the structure, which is unusual for a bridge in the centre of a town or village. The parapets meet stone boundary or building walls at three corners, the fourth terminating at a wooden gate post, without any change in form to mark the ends of the structure.
