Shakkin Brig

Shakin Brig

The Shakkin' Brig (shaking bridge) is a 19th century chain suspension bridge across the river North Esk. It is mainly constructed of wood with steel wires holding it in place and gets its name from the obvious shaking sensation felt when crossing it. The bridge has survived much damage in the past, mainly from floods.

It can be reached off the Main Street eastwards down a narrow lane called the Gassie Brae, because of the gas works at the bottom of the lane.

On the opposite side of the river were a number of mills including the Arnhall Mill but these have largely disappeared, except for one, which is now a house.

A peaceful and tranquil spot for photographers and nature enthusiasts alike.
