Milestone 53, Rubha Salach, Isle of Arran
Arran's circular road and The String road contain a total of approximately 50 red sandstone milestones, marking, I believe, the miles round the island. There is a book, 'The Milestones of Arran' by Ruth and Alan Thompson, dedicated to them, listing not only the view from each, but also details of flora and fauna to be found at each location.

Some of the milestones were difficult to locate whilst driving in the rain, others were damaged and some appeared to be missing. I have added those that I could safely stop at and those that I could find.

Not sure what happened to No. 54, but looking at the 1:25 000 map, I see I missed two milestones in Brodick that are not marked on the 1:50 000 map. I assume they're No. 2 and No. 1.

No. 53 is at the northern end of Merkland Wood. There's a picnic site on the opposite side of the road, making parking easy for this one. Marsh Thistle can be seen in the photo and I saw Oystercatcher too. This milestone is made more attractive by its orange spongy lichen covering.
