Calvine Viaduct near Struan, August 1995

This photograph shows Calvine Viaduct near Struan in August 1995.

When the railway line between Dunkeld and Forres was built in the early 1860s the Inverness & Perth Junction Railway had to negotiate with the owners of the various estates through which the line passed.

In order to avoid blighting the view of falls on the river Garry on the Duke of Atholl's estate the railway was carried across the river on a viaduct at the same point as an existing road bridge. It is a two-span stone viaduct with one arch over the road bridge and another over the river. The arch rings are of dressed stone and the spandrels of rubble. A steel-truss bridge has since been added to carry the single-track railway.
