Leaderfoot Viaduct, Scottish Borders

A short distance up the River Tweed from Scott's View lies the Leaderfoot Viaduct.  This 19-span victorian viaduct carried the old Berwickshire Railway 38m above the river valley floor.  I photographed the viaduct after sunset on my return from Scott's View.  The photo is taken from the adjacent Drygrange Old Bridge, an old bridge which remains in use as a pedestrian bridge with the modern road bridge behind me.  The three bridges are effectively referred to a Trimontium after the nearby Roman Fort which takes it's name from the three hills of the Eildons.
