Milestone, Crail
According to Canmore [LinkExternal link]:

'This milestone is situated on the SE side of the A917 public road in the SW end of Crail. It comprises a dressed sandstone block measuring 0.39m square by 0.66m in height and it is missing its cast-iron information cap, the E face of which once indicated the distances of 2 mile to Kilrenny, 14 miles to Largo Pier and 32 miles to Burntisland. The W face indicated the distances of mile to Crail and 3 miles to Kingsbarns. There is an Ordnance Survey benchmark on the NE face of the stone'.

The stone with its missing cast-iron cap was photographed by the Milestone Society [Link], but the cap had been replaced by 2011, when it appears to have been recently painted [Link].

It is now showing some rusty areas, and would benefit from another repaint.
