(Location cited as NC 668 588). Borgie Bridge, built c. 1830. A rubble bridge with two segmental arches and a triangular cutwater.
J R Hume 1977. <2>

Good example of a large Parliamentary bridge with two segmental spans and triangular cutwaters; by-passed and marred by ugly breeze-block walls across the entry.
G Nelson 1990. <3>

This bridge carries the former line of the A836 public road over the River Borgie.
Information from RCAHMS (RJCM), 8 May 1998.
