The Toll Brae House

Toll Brae Office

This is an etching of children crossing Glasgow Road going to school at Stonefield Parish School, affectionately known as Ness’s.

The Toll Brae house was the white cottage on the left. This site was known locally as “Hope Hall” because of ‘The Band of Hope Hall’ (A society similar to the Salvation Army) and the first building to be erected on this site, in the 1800s.

A Toll was paid to climb the Toll Brae from here to Station Road. The Toll was only paid going up the Brae.

Shire horses would be used to pull the carts up the Brae. The horses were stabled in John Street.
