Under the Bridge
This is the second bridge over the River Dee and it replaced an iron structure in 1926. This one was built by Mouchel & Partners and is a 5 span reinforced concrete, bow-truss bridge that is widely considered to be very ugly, and I suppose the locals always hope that it might fall down. That’s less likely now because it has been repaired recently at some considerable expense.
As you can see, the town of Kirkcudbright (Ker-coo-bree) lies just down river of the bridge where up to 15 fishing vessels tie up at the short harbour wall.
