The East Toll House, Cupar
The East Toll House, Cupar
From a bygone age when you paid to use each section of the road network. This toll house stands on what then would have been the Eastern edge of Cupar. At this point the eastern road out of the town splits, with the left road going to St Andrews and the right road going to Pitscottie. Tolls were collected here from around 1791, but the house was not built until around 1825. The toll keepers collected tolls here until an act of Parliament abolished toll roads nationwide in 1878.
