Like the one at Cambus O'May, this bridge was build by the firm of James Abernethy and Co, in 1892. I featured it here before, in February. Pre-dating Cambus O'May by 13 years, it is clearly a less visually attractive design. The towers are more crudely capped, and the "ladder rungs" separating the main cables are peculiar, although presumably not an original feature.
I reported previously that a budget has recently been agreed to refurbish the bridge. It certainly looks like it needs it.
