Description

1897. 5-span wooden trestle railway bridge; heavy timbers,
each trestle with substantial buttress props either side;
all bolted and braced with metal ties. Metal plated parapet

Statement of Interest

Built by the Highland Railway. The only wooden trestle

railway bridge on a mainline railway in Scotland.

Built and retained owing to difficulty of securing foundations

for a steel or masonry bridge.
