Photos taken at Leaderfoot Viaduct over the River Tweed in the Scottish Borders.
These photos show the Leaderfoot Viaduct which crosses the River Tweed north of St. Boswells.
This fine old railway viaduct used to carry a branch from the old Waverley Line between Carlisle and Edinburgh. The branch line led to Earlston, Greenlaw, Duns and on to the East Coast main line at Reston.
The viaduct is next to the site of a Roman bridge, Trimontium Roman encampment and amphitheatre.
