It is so much fun to drive the narrow, single-track roads through Scotland’s countryside. Not only is the scenery beautiful, but it’s along those routes that you often find the best surprises. On this day, the surprise was Culloden Viaduct. Culloden Viaduct (also known as Nairn Viaduct) lies about seven miles east of Inverness and […]Culloden Viaduct — My Plaid Heart
We’re playing catch-up with our BHC Pic of the Week due to non-bridge-related commitments that have kept me from keeping up with the weekly tradition.
We would like to show you one of the pics taken by James Baughn five years ago. It was a multiple-span Parker through truss bridge with riveted connections and A-frame portal bracings. It was built in the 1930s but was bypassed with a newer structure in ca. 2010 and had sat there awaiting for rehabilitation and repurposing as a pedestrian bridge. Unfortunately, its fate was sealed when three approach spans on one side of the river collapsed and it was subsequentially fenced off. It only took less than a month until it was torn down in 2016.
Does anybody have an idea what the name of the bridge is and where it is located?
Feel free to comment in the section below or on BHC’s facebook pages. The answer will come in the next week. Happy Bridgehunting, folks! 🙂
