Auchindrean Bridge

Auchindrean Bridge opposite the entrance to the Lael Forest Walk

Auchindrean Bridge was built by Sir John Fowler (1817-1898), the eminent 19th century engineer who was responsible for the construction of many railways around the world. He was also responsible for the design of the famous Forth Railway Bridge.

The bridge at Auchindrean is opposite the entrance to the Lael Forest Walk. It is a single span cantilever bridge and is thought to be the first prototype for the cantilever spans of the Forth Railway Bridge.
