Milestone 43, Lochranza Pier, 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.

No. 43 is situated just west of the pier and public toilets so parking is easy. The inscription is easily legible, though covered in white lichen. Oystercatcher, Pied Wagtail and White Clover noted at this site.
