Names and dates

River Bran Viaduct (1870-1954)
River Bran Viaduct (1954-)

Opened on the Dingwall and Skye Railway.


This single track, single girder viaduct is west of Lochluichart station. It was replaced in 1954 due to the diversion of the railway with the conversion of Loch Luichart into a reservoir.

The west end of the viaduct is close to the location of the west end of the original viaduct, the east end slightly further away.
