On the one hand a huge industrial eyesore on this wild unforgiving valley on the other a beautiful feat of Victorian engineering that somehow blends in perfectly. I think the valley is better for it, judge for yourself.

A beautiful, atmospheric place - spectacular and wild. There's a good path to it.Don't miss the information boards on the main road at the site of the camp where the labourers lived - fascinating background.

I visited the viaduct on Sunday and yes it is impressive but no more than the Findhorn viaduct in Inverness or the Glenffinan (Hogwort ) viaduct. They are all an amazing feat if engineering.

Originally there were two tracks over the viaduct, but during repair and reconstruction this has been reduced to a single track, reverting to double at each end of the structure. Ruth.
