First Passenger Train leaving Dornoch, 2nd June 1902

The first sod of the Dornoch Light Railway was cut on the 15th May 1900. The railway opened for traffic on Monday 2nd June 1902.

The coming of the railway to the Highlands opened the area up to visitors from the south and the 7½ miles of the Light Railway meant that Dornoch was linked to the main Inverness to Thurso line. The Dornoch Light Railway remained open until 1960.
