Scope and Content Aultnaslanach Viaduct, Moy, Inverness-shire This viaduct was opened in 1897 by The Highland Railway as part of their direct line from Aviemore to Inverness. It was designed by Murdoch Paterson. This viaduct shows a section of the viaduct from the west. It is a five-span timber trestle structure, the only one on a main line in Scotland. Note the raking stays which give the viaduct lateral stability. This viaduct, was built in timber because it proved difficult to secure adequate foundations for masonry piers.
