Crossings related to the B741

Nith Lodge Bridge or Nith Bridge carries the B741 across the River Nith on the moors South West of New Cumnock. It is the highest road bridge on the river, which rises in the forest to the south. The bridge itself appears to be more of a large culvert, built on a skew, with the grass verges continuing on either side of the road, sloping down towards the river, although the banks are very overgrown preventing easy access to see the precise nature of the structure. A curious fragment of stone wall stands on the west bank immediately downstream of the current crossing point, perhaps the remnants of an old stone arch bridge which would have crossed at right angles, or maybe part of another structure entirely.
