Name and dates

The Mound (1868-1960)

Opened on the Sutherland Railway.


Description

Not to be confused with The Mound, Edinburgh!
This was a two platform station - one platform on the main Far North line (with a loop) and a second branch platform, located just to the south, on the closed Dornoch branch. The station building still stands, in use as a house. The station initially had one platform and was expanded when the branch opened. The junction for the branch was immediately to the west and through running from Inverness to Dornoch was possible. There was a viaduct over the Fleet immediately to the south on the branch and the station is named for the embankment upon which the road (and former branch) ran, just to the south.
