OS Landranger 56 (Loch Lomond & Inveraray area)
This is characteristic of an older route as it is slightly further from the river, which was very important when the land wasn't well drained. It can often be seen that the newer roads gradually get lower and closer to rivers. This route must have seen a lot of traffic at one time. It was only superseded relatively recently, as the 1955-1961 edition of the OS 1" mapping still shows it as the main route through Strath Eachaig.
A milestone on this old road indicates "Dunoon Pier 6 miles".
