Long Description:

The Swilcan or Swilken Bridge, is a stone hump-back footbridge over the Swilcan Burn on the final hole of the Old Course at St.Andrews and is a well known landmark to viewers in televised golf tournaments.

The tiny stone built bridge is over 700 years old and was used as a crossing point of the burn for shepherds and their flocks on the old route from Cupar to St.Andrews.

The drawing was done at 11.30am on September 15th 2018, south-east of the bridge at The Links.
