NM8603 : Milestone, Ford

taken 7 years ago, near to Ford, Argyll And Bute, Great Britain

Milestone, Ford
Milestone, Ford
On the B840 just outside Ford.
The mileage information isn't readable, but might say 12 miles lo Lochgilphead.
An email from Patrick Mackie says "... it would have been Ardrishaig 13,
see the 1857 map at LinkExternal link.
At the time, Ardrishaig was the main destination because it was the steamer port on Loch Gilp
and Ford Bay was the pier for the Loch Awe ferry services."
