Dryburgh Suspension Bridge is a suspension bridge for foot traffic across the River Tweed near Dryburgh in Berwickshire, crossing to the fields on the Roxburghshire bank.

It is a relatively simple design with only one suspended span.


The suspension bridge was built as a footbridge from the very first, and was built in 1872 with a gift intended to allow the Dryburgh villagers to worship at the churches in St Boswells and Newtown St Boswells). An earlier bridge nearby, the Dryburgh Abbey Bridge, collapsed in 1818.
