Glenfinnan Viaduct ***

<<<<<                               >>>>>

Description:

I have used the word "iconic" way too much, but this is another...........site that is so incredibly Scottish.

Built in the 1890s, this railroad viaduct was the first structure in Britain to be built with mass concrete. It was this innovative building method that allows the overpass to remain in such good shape today. The diesel-powered West Highland Line frequently runs across it and there are regular steam-hauled excursions available in the summer.

The iconic Jacobite steam train runs across the viaduct to Fort William and Mallaig. The train may pause at the viaduct, time permitting, to allow visitors to take in the magnificent views.
