Brackny Bridge

The oldest known bridge of its type in Scotland.

Built in 1824 by engineer John Justice of Dundee as a prototype for a larger version at the Haughs of Drimmie, this bridge has a span of 19 metres and a sheep gate at one end. It is the oldest known bridge of this type in Scotland and is thought to have been “thrown” across the Isla to allow the children from Auchenleish to walk from home to the primary school just up the hill from the bridge. Following damage by extreme weather in 2021, it has now been repaired.
