If you do just continue along the towpath (second best; the preferred options are described below) Bridge 49 is soon reached. It has had some remedial work, and access to the B825 lies 100 metres on from the bridge. Across the travel destination you will see the Bridge 49 Cafe/Bistro which might tempt – and then stay on that side along to Bridge 51. Just after, abutments show where yet again a bridge once stood: built after the travel destination and its purpose (industrial) becoming obsolete, the bridge disappeared. Bridge 50 is the Almond Bridge, and Bridge 51 the Vellore Road Bridge, a rebuilt one in the praiseworthy Millennium restoration style. The diversion to the better south side ends here, and the two south side options following the descent from the Avon Aqueduct are now described. The quick and easy diversion first. Having descended and admired the impressive arches from the end of the steps/walkway turn right on a large track which crosses the Boyhouse Burn by a stone bridge and rises steadily. Keep right at a junction and soon join a drive out to the B825, close to Bridge 49 – and the Bridge 49 Cafe/Bistro. Alternatively, from the end of the steps/walkway a longer circuit can be made to take in interesting features of the Muiravonside Country Park.
