Description

This is an impressive single track mass concrete viaduct crossing the Kendrum Burn east of Edinchip House. From south to north there were five tall concrete arches, a long 82 ft girder section and then two concrete arches. Also known as Kendrum Burn Viaduct.

After closure in 1951 the girder section was removed.

It was was replaced in 1997 with a more lightweight portion which has allowed the trackbed of the line to be reopened as a cycle and foot path.

Nearby to the west is the Edinchip Viaduct [C and O].
