Tour Scotland Video Tolbooth High Street Dysart Fife
Tour Scotland video of the Tolbooth on ancestry visit to Dysart, Fife, Scotland. Dysart is a location for the filming of Outlander. Erected in 1576, this was once used as a public weigh-in and measures house; guards house and eventually a prison built as an extension in 1617. The building was also known to keep explosives. When this was occupied by Oliver Cromwell's troops in 1651, one of them accidentally dropped a match into a barrel of gunpowder causing the roof to be blown apart. The upper part of the building was rebuilt between 1733 and 1734 with an ashlar bell-chamber and a stone ogile roof.
