NR8671 : Barmore Viaduct

near to Tarbert, Argyll And Bute, Great Britain

Barmore Viaduct
Barmore Viaduct
This, I am told, is the highest privately-owned viaduct in Britain. It is quite hard to see through the vegetation, but one of the pillars is just about visible in the gap between the trees. The Barmore Burn, visible at lower right, is almost at sea level, and the 20-metre contour crosses both ends of the viaduct, so it is about 20 metres from the burn to the roadway. The viaduct, which is a Category B Listed Building, carried the drive to Barmore House. It was built in 1838 to a design by William Playfair, and has four arches.
