Ferryden Viaduct


(Inchbraoch Viaduct)

A gently curving railway viaduct which conveys the East Coast Main Line over a now-infilled channel onto Rossie Island, a mile (1.5 km) southwest of Montrose, the Ferryden (or Inchbraoch) Viaduct comprises seventeen semicircular brick arch spans by Sir Thomas Bouch (1822-80) for the North British Railway. It was completed in 1879, but was only in limited use for another three years while rebuilding work on the South Esk Viaduct, a quarter-mile (0.4 km) to the north northeast, was completed. Both viaducts are now B-listed but are single-track, the only single-track section on the East Coast Main Line, which is potentially a bottleneck to traffic.
