What a lovely viaduct and kept in good condition
Beautiful mid 19th century railway viaduct over the River Tweed in the Scottish Borders. Amazing looking place. Definately worth a visit.

This spectacular disused railway viaduct stands 126 ft above the bed of the Tweed valley, and was opened in November 1863 carrying the Berwickshire Railway. There are 19 slender brickwork spans of 43 ft arches, and the engineers were Charles Jopp & Messrs Wylie & Peddie. Freight trains were still using the bridge route until 1965 . At a later point it was earmarked for demolition, but thankfully it was saved by being awarded a grade A listed status in 1986, and was restored by Historic Scotland, who now are it’s caretakers.
There are superb views from the parapet of the Drygrange Old Bridge, and even on a dull day it’s worth a stop-off point.

Really nice viaduct over the river tweed. You can wander down the path or do one of the walks nearby and take pictures from the bridge for a good view. Plenty of parking, an information board and benches.

Spanning the River Tweed in Scotland this viaduct is well worth a visit, as is the wonderful Drygrange "Old Bridge" that is just downstream. Both bridges can be viewed from the new road bridge.

Excellent walk and great views of the three bridges.

Although you can no long access the Viaduct it is possible to walk over the stone bridge and experience the most wonderful views.

There is great parking and the walk from the Viaduct takes you the the site of the Roman Fort where well place information boards indicate sites of interest.

On a good clear day it was worth a small detour off the A68 to marvel at the engineering skills from an earlier age
