Full Description

RCAHMS Canmore description:
NC52SW 11 52943 22509
This granite milestone stands on the NE verge of the A836 public road about 2km SSE of the Crask Inn. Roughly triangular in section, the stone has two flat, dressed, faces on the front and a rounded rear that is roughly hewn. The stone measures 0.4m in breadth by 0.3m in depth and 0.38m in height and the upper part presents a steeply-sloping facet to the road. The stone bears no inscription, but the 1st edition of the OS 6-inch map (Sutherlandshire 1878, sheet LXXIV) notes that it marked the distance in miles to ‘ALTNAHARROW 9½’ and ‘LAIRG 11½’.
