Ferrydyke Bascule Bridge
Ferrydyke Bascule Bridge
This bascule bridge, crossing the Forth and Clyde Canal, is shown from the other side at NS4573 : Ferrydyke Bascule Bridge.

On its far side, a cycle route runs alongside the canal. The ruined building standing on the left was the bridgekeeper's cottage; see NS4573 : Ruins of the bridgekeeper's cottage.

Note also the low wall that runs alongside the cycle route on the right. From that wall, some sunken ruins can be seen on the other side; these are the remains of old stables: see NS4573 : Ruins of stables.

Between the ruined cottage and the stable wall, a path leads from the cycle route towards the former site of Donald's Quay, where a beacon still stands: NS4572 : Donald's Quay Light. For a good summary of the history of this immediate area, see NS4572 : River beacon on the railway wall.
