1912? I doubt this as the clothing worn by the people in the photo look about late 1950 vintage or style. I would even suggest that the smartly dressed boy in the foreground with the white hankie in his jacket pocket is Alastair Fraser(Frattie)then of Embo but now I believe Edinburgh...He is the brother of George and Iris, who I believe still live in Embo. In the late 1950s Alastair would have been aged about 15 years.

I have no idea how this photograph of the last train leaving Dornoch Station in 1960 came to be dated as 1912 so thank you for drawing this to our attention! - Administrator
