A view of Montrose (road) Bridge seen from beneath the South Esk Rail Viaduct in October 2022.

The pretty uninspiring road bridge opened to traffic in 2004 and replaced a much more visually interesting structure dating from 1930. The 1430ft long South Esk Rail Viaduct was built by the North British Railway (NBR) in 1881 and carries a single-track section of the Edinburgh-Aberdeen main line.

Digitised using Nikon D5600 & AF-S Micro-NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8, pixl-latr and Negative Lab Pro plugin with minimal cropping and tweaking in Lightroom Classic CC.
