Linlithgow Bridge is dominated by this 26 arch Viaduct which was constructed in 1840 to carry the main Edinburgh to Glasgow railway line across the valley of the River Avon to Linlithgow, which it still does today. The Viaduct is 442 yards (404m) long and 92 feet (28m) tall at its highest part.
The Avon Aqueduct runs through the middle of Muiravonside Country Park. Formerly an estate owned by the Stirling Family of Falkirk, this 170 acre park comprises woodlands, parkland and the River Avon.
At 810 feet long, this aqueduct is the second longest in Britain and lifts the canal 86 feet over the River Avon. The spectacular views from the top make the climb worthwhile.
