Milestone 32, Dougarie, Isle of Arran
Milestone 32, Dougarie, 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. 33 and this one threw me because it is not marked on either the
1:50 000 or the 1:25 000 OS maps. I assume it has been moved from somewhere else.

No. 32 is situated on the NW side of the Iorsa Water, near Dougarie. Parking is quite easy in a layby nearby. Foxglove, Plantain, Spear Thistle, Oystercatcher, Blackbird and Ragwort all observed here.
