Very quiet area, nice place to stop for a photo. If you are in the area, it's a good place to stop, take a photo and admire the viaduct.

We spotted this in the distance on our way to Cava Cairns, Culloden Battlefield and Cumberland's Stone but didn't go over to see it. Do NOT miss the Cava Cairns or Culloden battlefield!
