Tunnels [NAT]

OS 1:10,000 map, 1975.

See also NN17SW 11.00 and NN17SW 12.

This aqueduct over the Seangan Burn is inaccurately known as Telfer Tunnels. The arches of the aqueduct carry the burn under the canal (NN17NW 11.00), although one arch, originally intended for use by farm carts, enables motor vehicles to pass under the canal. It is one of the most significant aqueducts on this waterway.

G Hutton 1992.

This feature, enabling the Allt Sheangain to pass under the canal, is marked as 'Tunnels' on the 2nd edition of the OS 6-inch map (Invernesss-shire 1903, sheet cxxxix), on the current edition of the OS 1:10000 map (1975) and on the OS Basic Scale raster map (ND).
