The Old & New Bridges and other buildings
Ayr, South Ayrshire
Ayr bridges, Ayr, South Ayrshire, Scotland

The two bridges in the old town which are the main subjects of the poem “The Twa Brigs” by the Scottish bard Robert Burns.

The old bridge - the second one upstream and now a footbridge - was built from 1470 to 1525 but there is now a view that there might have been a bridge here as early as the time of Alexander II who reigned from 1214-49.

The stones on this side of the new bridge are the remains of an old railway bridge.
