The railway from Newtyle to Dundee has long since disappeared but, in Newtyle, its former location now forms part of the Newtyle Path Network. Because the climb out of Newtyle was too steep for a train, a large “loop” was built to enable the train to gain the necessary height over a gradual incline.
V1 – Footpath following the course of the line before it went into the “loop”.
V2 – Remains of what would have been a “turntable”.
V3 – Old bridge over which the railway ran going into the “loop”.
V4 – Old bridge on the loop through which the railway ran. The sides of the path drop away as the sides of the line would originally have done.
V5 – The top of the V4 bridge which was very narrow.
V6 – Further into the loop where it has been cut into the rock at both sides.
