Killiecrankie Viaduct

Located between the River Garry and the A9 Trunk Road in the Pass of Killiecrankie, the Killiecrankie Viaduct was built in 1863 by Joseph Mitchell (1803-83) for what was the Inverness and Perth Junction Railway, which became the Highland Railway Company in 1865 and continues as the main-line north from Perth. Constructed in the Baronial style at a cost of £5730, the 10-arched structure includes castellated towers at each end and a crenellated parapet. The viaduct is 155.5m (510 feet) in length, 16.5m (54 feet) in height at its maximum and each arch spans 10.6m (35 feet). The structure was B-listed for its architectural importance in 1971.
