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.

Comment left on 29 October 2015 at 15:45 by Kenneth Mackay 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
