Long Description:

This milestone is situated on the south side of the A91 road in the Kingdom of Fife, just to the west of the village of Dairsie, and two miles east of the town of Cupar.

The stone is of a similar style to the others that line the old turnpike route between the ferry ports of Newport-on-Tay and Pettycur, and is one of two on the A91.

It is constructed of a stone with a white cast-iron face, depicting the placenames in black cursive style lettering. Apart from Newport and Pettycur at both ends of the route, Cupar and the old coaching inn at New Inn are also listed. On top of the face just about readable, is the date, '1824' and 'Alexander Russell Kirkaldy Foundary'.

The milestone is on the opposite side of the road from the pavement that runs all the way from Dairsie to Cupar, but it is set well back on a wide verge amidst a small area of woodland near the junction of the minor road to Kemback.
