Our page background trivia - "Old Tolbooth" - Edinburgh

A heart shaped pattern of cobblestones in the road to the west of St Giles marks the site of the Old Tolbooth Prison. It stood here for over 400 years and was only demolished in 1817.

The Tolbooth served originally as a booth for collecting tolls, a council chamber, a court house, a place of execution and a prison. It was also the principal site for the display of the heads and limbs of those executed. The tolbooth was one of three essential features in a Scottish burgh, along with the mercat cross and the kirk (church).

There are around 90 tolbooths surviving in Scotland.

Many are still used as municipal buildings, while others have been renovated as museums, theatres, or other attractions.

 

It is an Edinburgh tradition to spit on the Heart as you go by.
