Montague Bridge allow the estate roadway to span a deep gully on the Panmure Estate. The estate is partly situated in the former Monikie Parish. The bridge is a very stylish, high-arched construction which is in a similar style as the Balmossie (former railway) Viaduct, north of Monifieth - referred to locally as 'the high arches'.
As can be seen, the bridge is quite spectacular in appearance. The sidewalls of the carriageway have a 'fortified' look, resembling castle ramparts. The structure is located among the trees, and spans a very deep gully across the Monikie Burn. The name, Montague, is apparently a family one which relates to past owners of the estate in Angus.
