Buchanan Street, Glasgow to Oban : route mileage.

Buchanan Street, Glasgow to Oban.

I am currently fine-tuning a small submission to 'TTL' and am needing to double-check & confirm the route mileage from Buchanan Street, Glasgow, through Dunblane and Callander to Oban. By using various sources I have worked out the following distances :


Buchanan Street, Glasgow to Dunblane : 35 miles 10 chains.

Dunblane to Oban : 82 miles (chainage not readily evident)

Total distance : 117 miles 10 chains.

Can anyone confirm/modify/reject the above distances ? Likewise, if anyone can confirm the exact mileage, including chains, from Dunblane to Oban, then that would be excellent.

Cheers

The WTT for Summer 1907 gives Buchanan Street to Oban as 117miles2 chains, Buchanan Street to Dunblane as 35miles10 chains, which would make Dunblane to Oban 81miles72 chains if my arithmetic is correct. I took these figures from the DOWN direction page and after checking the UP direction page Oban to Dunblane is confirmed as 81miles 72chains.
