Ballydehob, you see to your left a spectacular 12-arch stone viaduct. This is a relic of the West Carbery Tramway and Light Railway. It is part of a narrow-gauge railway line that ran from Skibbereen to Schull, a distance of about fifteen miles (24kms). The line was opened in September 1886, but it never really made a profit and it was finally closed in December 1945.
