Opposite is an image of a statue at Dunrobin Station in memory of  George Sutherland-Leveson-Gower, 2nd Duke of Sutherland. The Duke was largely responsible for the building of the single track "Far North Line" from Inverness to Wick and Thurso.He was one of the very few private individuals to own their own private carriage with permission to use it. The Duke's railway was later taken over by The Highland Railway, The LMS, British Rail and currently Scotrail.
