North Water Viaduct


(Kinnaber Viaduct, Fisherhills Viaduct)

A viaduct built to convey the Montrose and Bervie Railway northwards over the River North Esk, on the border between Angus and Aberdeenshire, the North Water Viaduct lies 1¼ miles (2 km) northeast of Hillside and 2½ miles (4 km) miles north northeast of Montrose. Also known as the Kinnaber or Fisherhills Viaduct, it opened in 1865 and comprises twelve masonry arches.

Passenger traffic ended in 1951 and the line closed completely in 1966. In 2002, the structure was acquired by Railway Paths Ltd. to form part of the National Cycle network.
