This article is about Stroan Viaduct, 1 mile W of New Galloway Station, across Black Water of Dee. Four arches, piers and abutments of masonry. Built 1860 by McNaughton and Waddell. Still standing in all its excellence, it can be crossed on foot showing some of the amazing views available to those who enjoyed "the port road" journey all those years ago.
