RUTHERGLEN BRIDGE. Scottish, Pipe March (6/8 time). G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The bridge Glasgow bagpiper, pipe teacher and pipe-maker William Gunn called Rutherglen may be one of two bridges spanning the Clyde at in what is now greater Glasgow. The first was bridge connecting Rutherglen to Dalmarnock that was constructed in 1776 and designed by James Watt, which stood until 1890 when it was replaced by a more modern structure. The second bridge, known as the Dalmarnock Bridge, also connects Rutherglen and Dalmarnock, and was originally built of wood in 1821. It was replaced with another wooden structure in 1848, the year Gunn published his bagpipe collection.
