Whilst out walking in January 2015 at Milheugh, I noticed something which I’ve previously not before.
Standing at the falls, and looking downstream, I could see the stone abutments of the abandoned modern timber bridge (the one we all care to debate often about!). However, between that position and the falls, are older, stone abutments, which once held an older, more ornate timber bridge. They are difficult to see and of course the older bridge is not there anymore, but the worked stone is apparent when viewed close up. In my photo, its where a tree is growing out of the abutments on the right hand side.
The older bridge was standing around the time of 1799 and featured in sketches of that time to the left of the mansion house (which at that time was much smaller than the one which was demolished in the 1960s)
