About
This is a pleasurable small walk along the burn of Letterfourie to the 17th Century Craigmin folly bridge. Please, when parking, park beside the smiddy antiques and not in front on local houses. The bridge has high unprotected drops both in and around the bridge, please take care and look after children. Please be aware there is no fairy village on the walk anymore

Great architecture

Well worth a visit, great hidden architecture.
Please note the fairy trial has been removed, still a great place to visit with or without the kids.

Fancy bridge

Short walk to a lovely bridge carrying a farm track over a small stream in a fairly deep ravine.
Sorry my photos are too big

Hidden gem -needs preserving.

found this by googling things to do. Approached via a fairy walk amongst trees dotted with faity houses.
Bridge is fantastic but sadly in need of some attention. Well worth the short walk to find it. If you have children they will love the fairy walk.

Lovely walk through woodland up to this splendid bridge. So peaceful. Helpful discreet signage and the added bonus of fairy houses too. Fantastic

Wow!
Jan. 2020
We researched, online, about the bridge, then drove out to try and find it one rainy day. We didn't see any historic signposts showing its existence, direction or location. We confirmed where it was by asking a local man. Getting late, so returned the next day.
Not much parking space in the middle of Drybridge, opposite the blacksmiths, which is best to reverse into. Then approx. 300m to the spectacular bridge (wellies required for me, for the mud and crossing the river), passing through the "Fairy Walk", which brought a small to our faces on this dull afternoon in January.
Wow factor for the bridge! To think about building that in the late 18th century and the complexities of it. Now "A" Listed and the only one of its kind in Scotland.
It seems to be neglected. A great shame. If it were located in the Home Counties of England, something positive would be done about it, but in NE Scotland there seems to be an apathetic mentality about its state/upkeep. Only when it crumbles into the river then people will complain, or try and do something about it....when it's too late!
Great to see for the first time. A most enjoyable walk, but sadly thought provoking at the same time relating to certain structural issues and the bridge's future.

Amazing bridge which was a short walk from Drybridge. Recommend a visit.
Excellent historical information on the internet if you search for it. The advice from another traveller to park opposite the blacksmiths was spot on! Fairy walk was delightful despite having no children with us but we all had a smile by the time we returned, lots of inventive ideas! We went in autumn and it was a bit muddy but not too bad, would consider boots or wellies if it had been raining though.

A hidden surprise.

We came on this bridge by accident! Before you get there you have to walk past faries, ents and dragons! Perfect for children. The bridge isnt far from the road and it is amazing to see such a structure where it is. Keep walking past the bridge and there is a rather large country house to look at.

Surprising gem of a walk
Jul. 2019 • Couples
Whilst walking the Fishwives Path from Bucki to Keith we found this slight diversion. It consisted of a woodland track with little fairy houses scattered throughout the woods. The walk culminated at this spectacular bridge over a small gorge and stream. This was a small walk but well worth our diversion
