Dighty Water, Linlathen, near Dundee, Angus, Scotland

An early iron bridge, built some time between 1795 and 1810, probably around 1804, making it the oldest in Scotland. Linlathen East Bridge was built as one of two approaches to the now-demolished Linlathen House. Clear span 10.7m. Sandstone buttresses.[1]. The wrought and cast iron members are particularly slender.
