The bridge carries the road over the Kilmahew Burn. The original bridge dates from 1688 and the benefactress was Jean Watson, a native of Cardross, who married a Leith merchant called Moore. Fragments of this early bridge are incorporated into the present late 19th century bridge, widened when the new road was constructed.
