Five milestones on the road from Guardbridge to Peat Inn were visited on Sunday 16 November 2014, in the course of a walk from Guardbridge to St Andrews via Strathkinness and Craigtoun. It was a day of milky sunshine, always threatening to become more overcast. An account of the walk can be seen here. (PDF file)
Milestone on the Strathkinness Low Road, showing 3 miles to St Andrews. See the walk from St Andrews to Ceres.
After Strathkinness the road climbs towards Magus Muir.
The fourth milestone is at Elderburn, between the Craigtoun Road and the turning to Denhead.
The road climbs with Drumcarow Craig on the right. Near the top is the Drumcarrow Equestrian Centre. The road then goes down to Cassindonald and the fifth milestone.
This is a different style of cap from those of the other stones on this route; The Gazetteer in The Milestones of Fife indicates that it was missing when the survey was done. Newport and Colinsburgh are both shown on the wrong side of the cap.
There is one more milestone on this road, at Blackwalls, which I shall visit as part of a later walk.
