Note:-
"There are eleven stone bridges and which are kept
" in good repair. One of them, of two arches, over the large
"burn of Paharrow is the private donation of one
"Quintin McLurg, a tailor who lived in that neighbourhood
"about 60 years ago. Being often in fear and danger of
"his life in passing and repassing this burn to serve his
"Customers, he resolved that no one should be in danger
"after him again, and erected this bridge out of the
"earnings of his trade, which was never more than 4d
"per day. His name still remains engraved on a large
"stone on the top of the bridge as a testimony of his public spirit"
