Rosemount Viaduct


(Denburn Viaduct)

The Rosemount Viaduct represents a bridge (sometimes referred to as the Denburn Viaduct) which crosses the Den Burn Valley in central Aberdeen, together with a road formed of its approach embankment, both located a short distance to the north of Union Street. The combination connects South Mount Street with Schoolhill and provided much easier access to the city centre than had previously been possible. It was built in 1886 at the substantial cost of almost £81,000 by William Bouton under the terms of the Aberdeen Extension and Improvement Act which had been advanced by Provost Esslemont in 1883. The embankment provided a site for St Mark's Church, His Majesty's Theatre and Aberdeen Central Library.
