Scope and Content South Esk Viaduct, Montrose, Angus This viaduct was built by the North British Railway after the opening of the first Tay Bridge to give a direct route to Aberdeen. The first bridge here was designed by Sir Thomas Bouch and was tested to destruction after the Tay Bridge collapsed. This view shows the viaduct from the north east. The robust construction is clear, with double-sided lattice (Town) hog-back trusses on riveted wrought-iron piers. The wrought-iron piers here were precursors of those used in the construction of the second Tay Bridge, though the design there was different. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
