Looking across the bridge

Kinbuck Bridge carries the B8033 across the Allan Water to the north of Dunblane. It is a narrow 2 arch structure dated 1752, which is now subject to a 10 tonne weight limit. This is despite both arches being strapped with iron bands and the cutwaters and abutments having been reinforced with a large volume of concrete.

The southern abutments have also been strengthened with newer flanking stonework in the past, with the road making a sharp turn at the southern end to avoid the hill. This hill also means that the roadway sits higher over the southern arch, descending across the bridge to a a lower level on the north side of the river.
