Tongland Bridge



Tongland Bridge is just over a mile north of Kirkcudbright on the road to Castle Douglas and Dumfries and was designed by the noted engineer Thomas Telford. It crosses the River Dee a short distance below the hydro-electric dam and was opened in 1808, having cost £7710. The main span is 112 feet and the two side spans are supported on three Gothic pointed arches.

  1. The three arches are three damsels hidden by the arch way, thats actually an invisible castle. The branches are dead..because a witch flew over its head..and lake is the source for meeting ..the remote location as you can see..romantic and serene..a place to be..for lovers ..who love endlessly.

  2. Besides being a beautifully composed shot, I love the way you’ve processed it … there’s a beauty to it that’s ancient and timeless, and, at the same time, there’s sort of an eerie feeling to it as well…. Beautiful!
