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. There is a short turning lane in the centre of the A85, however as it is sited on a tight bend, it is regularly used by traffic in either direction to safely negotiate the bend, and so turning traffic can still cause hold ups.

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 the old toll cottage still stands between the garage and the A827.
