First letter is the same as the W in William - looks like Wardman but no such occ, so go with Woodman

I went on another angle. Tried for an employer. Probably Lord Lambton. On the map I can see he had woods but herds I do not know.

I am sitting on the fence. Lord Lambton's fence. Put your computer on Find and there are three mentions of Harraton highlighed in yellow in the article,

I think he is a Woodsman.

 If I have found the right Robert, in 1881 he is a Gamekeeper (born Scotland?), which is a related occupation.

Commoners: DOUGAN (1844); FORD (1849); JOHNSTON (1850); BEATTIE (& LONG) (1856); BRICKLEY (1883).
Outlaws: MCGREGOR (1883) & ass. clans, Glasgow, Glenquaich, Glenalmond and Glengyle.
