Level Crossing at Kildonan

A location on the Helmsdale River in the Strath of Kildonan, E Sutherland, Kildonan lies 11 miles (18 km) north of Brora and comprises a railway station, a farm and Kildonan Lodge (1896). A gold rush took place here in 1869 and prospectors et up their encampment at Baile-an-Or (town of gold) to the east. Economic quantities of gold can still be found in the Kildonan Burn and the Suisgill Burn to the north.
