NN8548 : Craignish Bridge

near to Aberfeldy, Perth And Kinross, Great Britain

Craignish Bridge
Craignish Bridge
The wooden footbridge over the Moness Burn at the Lower Birks. The Birks of Aberfeldy is a steep sided, wooded glen originally named the Den of Moness. In the upper part, the Moness Burn rushes spectacularly over the Falls of Moness. Here in the “Lower Birks”, the power of the water was harnessed to provide electricity for the Aberfeldy mill.

Robert Burns was inspired to write his famous poem after a visit to the Den of Moness in 1787. As a result the Den with its Falls of Moness has been maintained as a scenic walk for over 200 years, taking the name "the Birks of Aberfeldy".
