swing pergola question

Hello all. I would like to build a swing pergola. What is the best beam to support the swing? Should I use a 2x6 with brackets or rest a 4x4 on the main pergola posts-from the corner 6x6 post to a middle 6x6 post. The swing will be on the side of the pergola. The Pergola will be about 18 feet long. thanks for any info

Different design for you to consider. Built these from a picture provided by client.
