Description

This is a single track girder viaduct south of Newtonmore station which crosses the River Spey. It has two sections and a central pier. Also known as Newtonmore Viaduct.

The viaduct was originally a timber single track bridge.

It was rebuilt in 1885, manufactured by Head, Wrightson and Co Ltd. It was to carry two tracks, but only the northbound line was laid and only those girders remain. (Two tracks appear in a photograph of 1903).
