Name and dates

Lochearnhead Viaduct (1904-1951)

Opened on the Lochearnhead, St Fillans and Comrie Railway.


Description

This is a single track mass concrete viaduct on a tight curve. It crosses the south end of Glen Ogle at the west end of Loch Earn at Lochearnhead. It is akin to the much more famous Glenfinnan Viaduct but no longer carries a railway. It has nine arches.

The viaduct is splendid and is perhaps best seen from the footpath which now occupies the former trackbed of the Callander and Oban Railway on the hillside above, best viewed in Winter when there are fewer leaves.
