Oich Viaduct

The piers of the viaduct that carried the railway over the River Oich at Fort Augustus. This was an extension from Fort Augustus station to a pier station at the side of Loch Ness. This extra mile was the most expensive part of the line, involving a swing bridge over the canal, two road bridges and this viaduct. This part of the line could have been part of the through route to Inverness that was projected but it wasn't completed and the pier line closed after only three years.
