Ballinluig Junction

Lix Toll is the junction of the A85 and the A827. It lies about 3 miles west of Killin, and as far as you can tell from the road, there is only a garage at the junction. However, hidden in the forest nearby is the small settlement of Wester Lix. The junction itself is a simple T-junction, with the A827 meeting the A85 on a sweeping bend as it turns to climb out of Glen Dochart and over the bealach to Glen Ogle.

The name allegedly comes from the fact that the 59th Legion (LIX!) were encamped near here in Roman times. The 'Toll' was added far more recently when a tollgate was erected here, and still stands between the garage and the A827.
