John Cobb measured mile
One of four markers on Loch Ness, indicating the start and finish of the measured mile on either shore, used during John Cobb's fatal attempt to beat the world water speed record on the 29th of September, 1952. Cobb was travelling as much as 206mph, when his boat nose-dived and disintegrated, killing him instantly.
