There is a sign at this point: “Right of Way to Caldercruix. 0.8km, ½ mile” The signpost has been knocked over and requires re-erection. There is a sign here for Caldercruix Countryside and Nature Park, this is long since gone, only the sign remaining. Right of Way SM15 starts across the road at the stile.
