Detail of old railway bridge, Ballindalloch
Detail of old railway bridge, Ballindalloch
An iron railway bridge, measuring about 85m in length, crossing the River Spey adjacent to Ballindalloch Station. The railway line was dismantled in the 1960s, and the line of the railway here forms part of the Speyside Way.

The main span of the bridge is constructed of iron girders, with high sides made of narrow girders riveted together to form a lattice pattern. At either end there are two short access spans, which now have ornamental cast-iron handrails. The abutments and piers upon which the bridge rests are constructed from blocks of rubble. The nameplate reads 'G. McFarlane, Engineer, Dundee.'

The bridge was opened in 1863 as part of the Strathspey Railway, running from Boat of Garten to Dufftown. As well as being a passenger line, the railway also helped to transport the huge volumes of whisky distilled throughout the Strathspey area.
