Old bridge and weir
Old bridge and weir
One of Scotland's oldest surviving bridges spans the River Nith. The present sandstone bridge (on the site of an earlier one built by the Lady Devorgilla) dates from around 1430, but was reconstructed after flood damage in 1620 and reduced from nine to six arches in 1794 after the river had been narrowed by land reclamation to create the Whitesands, from where this picture was taken.
