Description

John Fowler and Murdoch Paterson 1897. 9-span steel lattice-girder bridge carried on tall slender tooled rubble piers, a pair of which are in the River Findhorn and have rounded cutwaters. End masonry abutments with paired narrow round-headed arch rings; viaduct on slight curve. Overall length: 445 yards (405m).

Statement of Interest

Built by the Highland Railway. A fine example of a lattice-girder railway viaduct. Constructed with double-warren steel trusses. Similar construction is to be found at Larkhall viaduct, and, more notably, the Forth Rail Bridge, which Fowler was also involved with. Murdoch Paterson was appointed architect to the Highland Railway in 1874.
