One of the most famous bridges in the world, Swilcan Bridge is the iconic stone bridge on the Old Course at St. Andrews.

Not all that common in Scotland, the bridge is just 30 feet long, eight feet wide and six feet tall and is likely about 700 years old, although no one really knows for sure. It was called the Golfer’s Bridge as early as 1810 and the first hole on the course was known as the Bridge Hole until the 20th century.Spanning one of the most famous water hazards in golf, the bridge has become a cultural icon and it is the rare visitor who leaves St. Andrews without snapping a photo on it.More
