Old Photograph Viaduct Loudon Hill Scotland

Old photograph of the railway viaduct below Loudon Hill near Darvel which is located ten miles East of Kilmarnock, Ayrshire, Scotland. The A71 Edinburgh to Kilmarnock road passes by the base of the hill. This route follows a Roman road which linked the Clyde Valley with the Ayrshire coast. The railway line ran from Darvel to Loundonhill to Strathaven. The line was single track with loops at stations, the stations had island platforms. The Darvel to Loudonhill section was owned by the Glasgow and South Western Railway and the Loudonhill to Strathaven section owned by the Caledonian Railway.
