Full Description

Bridge abutments were noted during a DBA and walkover survey by RoCAS in 2012 on behalf of Forestry Commission Scotland. The ruins were along the access track to the west side of the burn. They were comprised of Caithness flagstones, concrete blocks and a steel culvert. They were possibly used by the Forestry Commission to access a works staging area during the ploughing of the area, which was never planted. <1>
