Description

Loch Lomond And Trossachs National Park Planning Authority

A mid 19th century cast iron milepost along the A821 road near to Trossachs Parish Church (see separate listing) between Callander and Loch Katrine. After the opening of the nearby Trossachs Hotel in 1849 and the arrival of the railway to Callander in the 1850s this section of the A821 became extremely busy with tourists as the main route through the Trossachs terminating at the head of Loch Katrine. The milepost has historical interest, relatively early date, and simple but elegant design when compared with later mileposts.

Set on a pedestal with an angled 2-sided face with half pyramidal cap and blank rear section. The SE face reads 'Trossachs Hotel 1 miles, Loch Katrine 2 ½ miles'. The SW face reads 'Callander 7 miles, Stirling 23 miles'.

Statement of Interest

The milepost is painted white with the frame of the faces, lettering, and moulding to the pedestal painted black. There are a further 2 similar mileposts located to this stretch of the A821 at NN 50064 06743 and NN 58958 06493 (see separate listings).
