Long Description:
The bridge was built in 1770 from the ruined Castle Ardstinchar stones. The house collected tolls for using the bridge. A coach with two horses was 1/6 (one shilling and six pence) and 4/- (four shillings) with four horses. A farm wagon and two horses cost 1/- (one shilling) and 4/- (four shillings) with four horses. The stone bridge is no longer in use, being replaced with concrete affair in 1964.

An information board on grass area between the bridges explains brief history.
