Old and New Bridges and Town - Ayr

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 older bridge - the second one upstream and now a footbridge - was built from 1470 to 1525 but it's thought that there might have been a bridge here as early as the time of Alexander II who reigned from 1214-49. The present Auld Brig has been rebuilt and repaired many times, most notably in 1588.
