NR8639 : Milestone 34, Imachar, Isle of Arran

Milestone 34, Imachar, Isle of Arran
Milestone 34, Imachar, 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 no. 35.

No. 34 is situated near Imachar, nearly on the beach itself! It is a very clean milestone and easily legible. Parking is quite easy. I saw Tufted Vetch, Wild Rose, Red Clover and Bramble and there is an excellent Oak Wood on the opposite side of the road where I saw a Purple Hairstreak butterfly.
