Description Glen Loy Aquaduct General View

Collection John R Hume

Category On-line Digital Images

Scope and Content Glen Loy Aqueduct, Caledonian Canal, Inverness-shire This is the largest of six aqueducts on the section of the canal between Loch Lochy and the sea. It has three spans, the centre one for the river Loy and th outer ones for farm access, though they too can be used by the river in flood. This view shows the south face of the aqueduct, which is curved in plan and battered to resist the weight of the canal bed and the water in it. The piers have small cutwaters to protect them from the scouring action of the river. The canal was designed by Thomas Telford, and built with Government funding to provide a safe route, avoiding the dangerous Pentland Firth, for small warships and the generality of trading vessels of the period.
