Neidpath Viaduct

Neidpath Viaduct was commissioned by the Symington, Biggar and Broughton
Railway company but, by the time it was built in 1864, the said company had been absorbed by the Caledonian Railway. Said to be one of the finest examples of skew-arch construction in Scotland, the viaduct no longer carries a railway over the River Tweed as the line from Symington to Peebles closed to passengers in 1950 and completely by 1966. It now forms part of a footpath.
