Old milestone at Rhu
Old milestone at Rhu
The stone is set in a wall next to a bus stop on NS2783 : Gareloch Road (see that photograph for context). The milestone is an old one; it is shown, at or near its present position, on the first-edition OS map (surveyed in 1860).

"Dunbarton 10 miles / Garelochhead 5 miles / Arrochar 15 miles"

The spelling "Dunbarton" is one that was favoured by the Trustees of Turnpike Roads (for reasons that are explained in NS3181 : Old milestone in Craigendoran). Compare NS3477 : Milestone in Cardross.
