This is completely open site, open 24/7, fully accessible.

There is no parking, as all of the land in the area is privately owned, some locations posted with No Parking signs. There is a road which passes under the viaduct.

If visiting here, why not visit the Clava Cairns site, all of a 1/4 miles to the northwest.

During our stay in Inverness my family and I visited the spectacular Culloden Viaduct (aka Nairn Viaduct/Culloden Moor Viaduct) to the east of Inverness on the Highland main line. The viaduct was opened in 1898 and spans the valley of the River Nairn being just over a third of a mile in length. The viaduct is now preserved as a listed building. There was also a railway station at Culloden Moor situated at the northern end of the viaduct, but the station was closed in the 1960s. This is a fantastic structure and well worth a visit.

Worth a detour on very narrow, minor roads if you're in the area. This impressive structure is apparently the highest, long such structure in the UK. Standing under the arches you feel insignificant.

Would be great to catch it as a steam train passes!

The Battle of Culloden took place just outside Inverness and the site is now bisected by the viaduct taking the Highland Mainline from Inverness to Perth and beyond.

There are beautiful views as you cross the viaduct of the surrounding valley. Well worth checking out on your journey.

Part of our tour to see the Big Four. About 15 minutes walk from the car park to a viewing point. We chose not to go up the hillside adjacent to the car park as it was a murky day and apparently the views can be obscured. So we walked to the far end of the viaduct and clambered up the hill until we hoped was a good view. And sure enough it was and a great sight to see the Harry Potter steam train come thundering through. Have video at the ready if possible if not snap away. a glorious moment.

Only saw this from the air when flying out from Inverness but even from several thousand feet up in an aircraft you can't help but marvel at this wonderful structure that was also used in the Harry Potter films.

We stumbled on the Nairn Viaduct by accident but it's a magnificent structure, we lay underneath it watching the sky which is very disorientating ! Well worth a quick visit to see it for yourself !!

This viaduct is work of art and for a manmade structure actualy looks beatiful in its setting, easy parking nearby at clava cairns, (also worth a look ).

Well worth a visit if you are in the area. Impressive piece of Victorian architecture - still in use. Do visit the nearby stone circles at Clava Cairns.
