Tour Scotland Video Drive Toll Road To Balmullo Fife

Tour Scotland video of a drive on the Toll Road from Guardbridge on ancestry visit to Balmullo, Fife, Scotland. The village name was recorded as Beilmullhoh in 1282. Now largely a dormitory settlement, it was once a weaving village. Shortly after the creation of the United Kingdom in1707, turnpike acts began to be passed by the British Parliament to encourage the construction of toll roads in Scotland in the same way they had been used successfully in England and Wales. The first turnpike act for a road scheme in Scotland was passed in 1713 for the construction of a road in Midlothian.
