Kitty Swanson’s Bridge

The site of an old pedestrian ferry crossing.

This bridge is named after Kitty Swanson, who operated a pedestrian ferry crossing here for many years in the late 1800’s – possibly a chain or rope ferry – and lived in a cottage nearby.

Whilst there was a ford that allowed vehicles to cross at this point, the pedestrian ferry was important as Bendochy Kirk and school served a huge parish on both sides of the river.

The old bridge was replaced in 2015.
