Full Description

A culvert under the railway at Achany near Lairg.

In 2014 ARCH provided a number of courses, field trips and other activities exploring and researching the remains of the 19th century engineer, road and church builder Thomas Telford. A project was undertaken in Kyle of Sutherland, during which many sites were visited and photographed by participants. Culvert under the railway. The Allt na Fearna Beag had been diverted away so that most of the water flowed into the Allt na Fearna Mor, but a culvert was still necessary for a much smaller flow of water on the original line of the Allt na Fearna Beag. <1>
