Nairn Viaduct [NAT]
OS 1:10,000 map, 1990.
A remarkable 28-span masonry viaduct, the longest in Scotland and built on a curve.
J R Hume 1977.
This double-track viaduct is the longest masonry railway viaduct in Scotland. It was designed by Murdoch Paterson for the Highland Rly across the River Findhorn; it opened on 1 November 1898 and remains in use.
M Smith 1994.
This viaduct carries the (current and diversion) Perth-Inverness main line across the River Nairn, which here forms the boundary between the portions of Croy and Dalcross parish in Inverness District (Inverness-shire) and Nairn District (Nairn). It is approached by massive embankments on both N and S and forms a short break in the otherwise-unrelenting climb of the railway heading S from Inverness.
