Looking at the 1881 Census for Portree there are several men called Samuel Nicolson who would be of an age to witness a marriage.

Thanks Emeltee.

I didn't think the third letter from the end was an 's' but looking at the last letter of Witness it fits.

I'll scan the whole page for another upper case 'N' to compare.

There is one but it does not help. Nicolson fits better than Ariolyon.
