Full Description

A bridge across the railway near Inverness Airport. It was noted in a DBA in 2002 by SUAT for a proposed new access road to Inverness Airport, as being built of reddish sandstone with brickwork forming the barrel vault over the single track. It was considered to be well-built, in excellent condition with little or no erosion or weathering. It was probably to be retained and it was considered to be a good example of C19 railway architecture, adding to the amenity and interest of the area. <1>
