Invershin Viaduct, June 1975

Invershin Viaduct is also known as the Shin or Oykel Viaduct. It carries the Far North line over the Kyle of Sutherland, and the stations at Culrain and Invershin are located either end of the viaduct. These stations are only a mile apart, the distance by road is over 8 km (5 miles), and is the shortest distance between two stations on the UK rail network. The viaduct was designed in 1863 by Joseph Mitchell and Murdoch Paterson and is reputedly the longest single box section bridge in Europe.
