The rail bridge at Clachnaharry is the only rail connection to the far north of Scotland (Thurso, Wick and Kyle of Lochalsh). The swing bridge is almost identical in design to the two road bridges over the canal.
The bridge used to be hand powered. Like many bridges which were 'upgraded' with electric motors, the bridge now takes significantly longer to open and close.
After crossing the Caledonian canal, the track leads directly to the Ness Viaduct to cross the neighbouring river and reach the Inverness station.
