Old Tolbooth

Old Tolbooth
ASA  Listed Building 2006 The Old Tolbooth (B-listed c.1770) is a prominent waterfront building which had fallen into decline. The RLNI was looking for new premises to replace its shore station so it was decided to restore and convert the Old Tolbooth for this purpose. The project was developed in consultation with Historic Scotland, including replication of the original clocktower which had been removed in 1927.
