Dumfries Bridges Civil Engineering Trail

Dumfries 1st Jan-31st Dec All day Free

Being so close to the border, Dumfries has had a history of conflict but the bridges of the town tell a different story, one of uniting communities old and new.

The bridges also reflect the story of transport; from the pedestrian and horse traffic of the Middle Ages, through the growth of cars in the 20th century, to today’s need to reduce pollution and reliance on fossil fuels and focus on more active ways of travelling.

On this self-led walk through the town centre bridges you’ll learn about the engineering behind them and see things you may never have noticed before.

Available all year round.
