Culloden Viaduct

Culloden, Clava or Nairn Viaduct

The Culloden, Clava or Nairn Viaduct (known by all three names!) spans the River Nairn near Clava, about 6 miles from Inverness. It is the longest masonry railway viaduct in Scotland and remains in regular use for passenger traffic to this day.

It was opened in 1898 as part of the Inverness and Aviemore Direct Railway, which was built by the Highland Railway. The 29 span viaduct crosses the wide valley of the River Nairn. At 1800 ft (549 m) in length, it is the longest masonry viaduct in Scotland.

The viaduct is a Category A listed building.
