This is a single track viaduct over the River Tay just north of the former Dalguise station. The castellated abutments are rather fine. It consists of two lattice girders of 210ft and 141ft. The southern girder is the longer and there are castellated abutments at either end, designed to please the Duke of Atholl.
The bridge was designed by Joseph Mitchell. Also called River Tay Viaduct. Ironwork was supplied by Sir William Fairbairn & Co.
The embankment of the railway here can be damaged by the River Tay when in spate. This occurred in 1868 and again in 1992. (On the 7th of February 1989, when the Ness Viaduct in Inverness washed away, surface-men equipped with red and green flags indicated to the drivers whether it was safe to proceed.)
