Dalguise Viaduct
Dalguise Viaduct
At Dalguise the Tay is wide and liable to flood. The railway is carried over it on two close-latticed wrought iron trusses, 64 m (210 ft) and 43 m (141 ft) long. These are supported on pairs of stone piers which are carried upward as turrets with crenellated tops. The whole appearance is both impressive and charming. It is listed Grade A.
The railway northward from Perth was built by the Inverness & Perth Junction Railway whose engineer was Joseph Mitchell (1803-1883). He was the son of the Chief Inspector who had worked for Telford on the great road building programme in the highlands, and succeeded his father before turning to railways.
