Old milestone
Old milestone
This simple stone is at the crossroads in Tarves where the B999 turns to the north. For the traveller from Aberdeen the 3 refers to the mileage to Haddo House, now National Trust for Scotland property but once the home of Lord Byron's mother, Catherine Gordon. It is marked on the pre 1900 OS 6" map as is the 1 mile stone on the route into the estate from the Mains of Keithfield. A 2 mile stone isn't marked.
