As you begin the West Coast 200 route from Killin on the A827, the next point of interest (other than the surrounding natural beauty) will be the LIX Toll Junction.
The LIX Toll dates back to Roman times. The reason for the name of the junction is that it is alleged that the 59th Legion was based and had an encampment here in Roman times. Consequently, LIX is the Roman numerals for 59.
The ‘Toll’ in the name came later. The reason the Toll was added was due to a tollgate which was erected here. While motorists do not have to pay a toll to use the junction now, you can still see the old toll cottage here.
To carry on the West Coast 200 route, motorists should follow the A827 and then turn right onto the A85 at the junction.
