Highland landmark turns blue in support of NHS

Findhorn viaduct lit up blue
Findhorn viaduct lit up blue

The Findhorn viaduct was lit-up to show solidarity with key workers and NHS staff tonight.

The viaduct, above the River Findhorn at Tomatin, near Inverness, was designed by renowned railway engineer John Fowler.

The illumination of the Highland structure came as people throughout the country once again took part in a mass round of applause to thank NHS staff for their invaluable work.

Alex Hynes, managing director at Scotland’s Railway said: “Findhorn viaduct has recently been refurbished and offered a fantastic back-drop as we light-up blue as a symbol of public support for the vital and incredible work of NHS staff who are tackling the coronavirus.

“We are grateful to all key workers across the country, including those in our railway family, who are playing a massive role in supporting the country at this time.

“Day by day, the stories of bravery and dedication shown by care workers, staff in the NHS and everyone else who is working to keep our people safe, and give comfort and support  where it is needed, is truly humbling.”

The lighting of Findhorn viaduct was undertaken by the Stage Group, following the clear social distancing messages from government.
