Cruach Rock Snowshed

View south over the southern half of the Cruach Rock Snowshed. This is a covered cutting running north 205 yards from a girder overbridge. The roof is made of corrugated iron laid over a structure built of old rails with two walls built on either side of the cutting. There is a central portion which can be lifted off in the summer and replaced to keep the snow out of the cutting. When a train passes some of the central portions are lifted by the dam of air pushed by the train. Spoil from the cutting can be seen on the right.
