Old milestone
Old milestone
The presence of the stone is noted on both the 1:25000 and 1:50000 OS maps (as "MP": milepost). It was present when the first-edition OS map was surveyed in 1860, and is noted on that map (as "MS"). It is still in its original position, near the junction of the Old Military Road and Duncryne Road.

The Commissioners of Supply, and the Trustees for the Turnpike Roads, who were responsible for these milestones, appear to have favoured the spelling Dunbarton; see NS3181 : Old milestone in Craigendoran for more on that topic.

(Also with the spelling "Dunbarton": NS3477 : Old milestone in Cardross and NS2783 : Old milestone at Rhu. With "Dumbarton": NS4972 : Old milestone in Duntocher and NS4174 : Old milestone at Dumbuck.)
