Craighead Viaduct (1877-1952)
Opened on the Glasgow, Bothwell, Hamilton and Coatbridge Railway.
This viaduct on the North British Railway's Hamilton branch crossed the River Clyde just south of Bothwell and east of Blantyre. The condition of the viaduct led to the line being cut back to Bothwell [NB] , just to the north, in 1952. Formerly the line had continued south to Craighead Signal Box, Auchenraith, and Hamilton [NB] .
The ashlar piers of this viaduct have been removed.
