Den Burn Valley

A small valley in the centre of Aberdeen, the Den Burn Valley was carved by the now-culverted Den Burn and is now the route for the railway north from Aberdeen Railway Station and Den Burn Road, which takes traffic from the A93 north under the city centre. The valley is crossed by the Union Bridge (1801) and the Denburn Viaduct (1867), which became the Rosemount Viaduct (1886). Today, the valley is most obvious between the Union Bridge and Rosemount Viaduct, its western slopes occupied by Union Terrace Gardens. To the south of Union Street, the Trinity Centre (built 1984) sits over the valley.
