Ettrickfoot Viaduct

View west at Ettrickfoot, some 3 miles south of Galashiels, from below the bridge that carries the A7 across the River Tweed. At this point the Tweed has just been joined by the Ettrick Water, running in from the upper left. It was here that the Selkirk branch crossed the river, midway between Abbotsford Ferry and Lindean stations. The branch closed in 1964 and the viaduct was subsequently demolished, although remains can still be seen in the river. This view in 2016 shows an angler alongside the remains of the north pier. For a view of the old viaduct from the south in the early 1960s see 57798.
