Brig o'Doon, Alloway, Ayrshire

The world-famous Brig O'Doon from an unusual angle.

This was made popular by Robert Burns' poem Tam O'Shanter and is the old stone bridge over the River Doon that Tam O'Shanter galloped across on his horse Meg to escape the witches from Alloway Kirk.

From here you can barely see that it's a steep, hump-backed construction.

We'd also like to point out that it has nothing whatsoever to do with the film “Brigadoon” which is a totally different story and is entirely fictitious. Unlike Burns' tale of witches and warlocks…
