Pshann,
Your postmark is St. Kilda Railway Station.
The watermark is normally sideways on that stamp.
Upright watermark is rarer and worth substantially more.

Edit: Geoffha beat me to it!

fds - I thought you'd be filling us in on its racy past!

Named after St Kilda, an archipelago of Scottish islands abandoned by the residents around ninety years ago.

I believe this wasn't 100% voluntary.

There's been a couple of programs here recently on this fascinating place!
