Tour Scotland video of River Leven and the railway viaduct on visit to Leslie, Fife. The viaduct was built in the 1850s as part of the Markinch to Leslie railway line after the Earl of Rothes objected to the lines crossing his land. The railway also had to be elevated to cross the River Leven. The last run of a steam train over the structure was in 1965 when the Scottish Branch Line Society called in with an enthusiasts Special Train. It is now used by walkers and cyclists. This Scottish viaduct was designed by Sir Thomas Bouch, who also designed the first Tay Railway Bridge, built in 1877, but which collapsed on December 28th the following year in a storm.
