Clava Viaduct

Located some 6 miles (10 km) east of Inverness, the Clava Viaduct conveys the Perth - Inverness main railway line 39m (128 feet) above the valley of the River Nairn. Built between 1893 and 1898, this impressive viaduct is some 549m (600 yards) in length and consists of 29 red sandstone arches. The viaduct was built by Sir John Fowler (1817-98) and Murdoch Paterson (1826-98).

Nearby are the prehistoric chambered cairns of Clava.
