What a delight!
Alan: A little part of Scottish history.
Lovely old bridge, well captured Alan. It must have been on the limit for a packhorse bridge with that arch! It reminds me of a story I heard about the Tyne bridge, when an old coal merchant saw the arch being built before they hung the roadway from it, who said " I don't think my hoss 'n cart 'ill get ovver yon bridge! "
Alan: I'd been very wary loading up a packhorse before crossing the bridge. I wonder just how much material has been removed from on top of the arch?
Amazing the arch they put on this... Beautiful photo!
Alan: A classic shape. Its probably stronger than it looks but I had no desire to get on to it.
Très jolie photo.
Alan: A little part of Scottish history.
Let's hope it can be preserved like this for generations to come, Alan! How poetic.
Alan: I'm sure now it will still be there long after we have gone, Ginnie.

I am surprised it stays up, Alan - it has probably had lots of "muckle spates" since 1829
Alan: I wonder just how much material has been removed from on top of the arch. I'm sure you're right of about the "muckle spates".

It's very pretty but I wouldn't want to jump up & down on it, with my pockets full of coins, bullets or bread pudding..
Alan: Nor me.

I so love the view, Alan. This is such a beautiful spot. However I would not dare to cross the bridge, there are limits to me being the daredevil here....
Alan: Best enjoyed from nearby, I feel, rather than clambering on to it. Fortunately, there is a much more substantial bridge close by which takes the modern "horseless carriage" smile

I am not sure if I would dare to cross this bridge. An impressive view from the river!
Alan: Nor me! I may frequently do daft things but even I have some common sense on occasions smile Thanks, Philine.

I was hoping to see a picture of you jumping off it Alan.
Alan: I'd hate to be the person who brings it down so I kept off it.
A delightful scene Alan

Many a mickle makes a muckle
Alan: Umm.. if you say so!
I knew where this is from the thumbnail, a much visited tourist attraction for which you have found a great viewpoint.
Alan: We were lucky as shortly after a coach load of tourists arrived and got in the way.
> Very nice view... especially with the blue sky above giving it colour contrast.
