Description

This is a single track six arch masonry viaduct crossing the Eas a^ Ghaill (tributary to the River Lochy) and two estate roads. It was finished in November 1876 by Mrs Dinnie, wife of the builder, setting the keystone at a ceremony. Invited guests arrived by train, the location could be considered a very short lived station which predates Dalmally!

The main contractor for this portion of line was John Mackay.

Succoth Lodge is just off to the east, on the north bank of the stream.

There was a derailment at Succoth on the 13th of September 1886.
