The brig o doon was featured in the poem Tam O' Shanter by some chap called Robert Burns. Tam on his horse Meg were chased by the witches that had gathered at the Auld Kirk Alloway, if Tam and his horse could make the keystone of the bridge before they were caught they would be safe. Safe from the witches as witches can't cross running water. Just as Meg and Tam reached the keystone one of the witches grabbed Meg's tail and pulled it right off but Tam and Meg escaped. This is the bridge in question taken from a different angle than usual.
