This milestone is shown on the first edition of the 1:10560 OS map, surveyed in 1857, and is showing its age, but the text can still be read; it is more legible in a picture taken seven years later, after the milestone had been repainted: NS3477 : Old milestone in Cardross.

I have called this a milestone, although it is really a piece of iron. This one is set in front of a wall; other milestones on the same road are of the same kind, and have had short sections of wall built behind them: NS3181 : Old milestone in Craigendoran and NS3280 : Old milestone at Colgrain.
