One of a number of fine suspension footbridges spanning the River Dee. James Abernethy also built Cambus O¿May Bridge 1905 listed at category B and Invercauld Bridge 1924 also listed category B. A plaque on the N pylon commemorates the gifting of the bridge to the public by Mr Alexander Gordon, Southwood, Hildenborough, Kent. The delicate latticework of the parapets make this a significant landscape feature.
