Old Pack Horse bridge over the River Bladnoch
This bridge lies on the course of the old Military Road, built in the 18th century to enable rapid transport of troops to Ireland via Portpatrick. Curiously, one arch remains, covered in gorse bushes; whilst the abutment on the opposite bank has been reduced to rubble.
