Site of Conon Bridge station
The railway is the Inverness to Wick and Thurso line, which opened in 1862. This photograph is taken from the end of Station Road, Conon Bridge. The station here closed in June 1960. What looks to be a former platform is on the right, and is now part of the back gardens of modern houses. If this was a platform - was there once a siding here? (See also NH5455 : Conon Bridge station (former) ).
Update: I have been contacted by Alasdair Cameron, who confirms "Yes, there were several sidings and a large goods shed". Thank you for the information Mr Cameron.
