The following photograph of my father's two-door Morris 8 Series E, was taken some time during 1956 to 1964; most likely somewhere in Scotland, not too far from our home in Dundee.

Does anyone recognize the river bridge and where it is located?

That car transported us once or twice per year between Dundee and the London area, to visit my grandparents and other relatives; my parents having moved to Dundee when I was 8 months old, so that my father could commence his medical studies as a mature student of 27¼ years old, at the Queen's College medical school in Dundee (part of the University of St. Andrew's in Fife) in October 1956. The circa 420 mile journey, typically took about 12 hours, which was rather chilly in winter; the car having no heating & demisting system.

A possible location is the Creagan Viaduct:

Comparing the photographs with mine, it seems very likely that my photograph was taken at this location, but being aged 8 months to 8½ years, during the period that my father owned the Morris 8 Series E, when we lived in Dundee, I don't clearly recall all the places we travelled, although I do have a very vague recollection of visiting Oban, which is not far from there!
