Old railway embankment and bridge abutment
Originally the railway line from Dumfries to Stranraer ran through to Portpatrick. However, with the decline of the ferry trade from Portpatrick, and the rise of traffic through Stranraer, the line closed in 1950. The main A716 road used to kink under this bridge.
