Carribber

(Carriber)

A location on the River Avon on the western border of West Lothian, Carribber (archaically Carriber) is situated 2½ miles (4 km) west southwest of Linlithgow on the northwestern edge of the Bathgate Hills. Representing an ancient barony, it now comprises farms at Carribber Mill and Easter Carribber, together with the ruined 16th C. Carribber Castle, while the Avon passes through the steep little gorge of Carribber Glen. Carribber Bridge was completed in 2005 and carries the River Avon Heritage Trail over the river. This footbridge is notable as one of the earliest stress-laminated wooden bridges in Europe.
