Milestone 50, Mid Sannox, 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.

I missed milestone No. 49.

No. 50 is situated next to the golf club just across the Sannox Burn. It is covered in white lichen. Parking difficult; I parked in the car park on the south side of the burn and walked. Flora and fauna seen here included hirundelles, bramble, foxglove, holly, birch, beech and hawthorn.
