From a book called Origines Parochiales, about the Parishes of Scotland, published in 1851, “Bothwell bridge, across The Clyde, was an early erection, probably of the 14th century. Another bridge, of one arch, high, very narrow, and without parapets, across the South Calder, is said to be in the line of the great Roman road, and is generally, though perhaps erroneously, called a Roman work.”
I’m sure the description below refers to the “Roman Bridge” at Strathclyde Park, immediately beside the ruins of the Roman Baths. It sounds very similar and I’m sure regardless of it being called Roman, was definitely there in the 1850s. Outwith Blantyre, the bridge can be seen from the roadside in Strathclyde Park nowadays.
