The Tory Brig

One of the many bridges over the Calsay Burn, the Tory Brig is so called because it was part of the route taken by Tory voters to the Town hall avoiding the mob at the bottom of the Kilnheugh.

The last person to be incarcerated in the town gaol was a woman who hurled a turnip at one of the Tory voters.

Fortunately things have changed in a Auchtermuchty today (a bit).

Boundary Stone, Mournipea

 

 

 

 

 

At various stages in the history of Auchtermuchty the Town Council sold off bits of common land to raise money. As a result the boundaries of the burgh kept shrinking. The boundary marker shown below indicates where the boundary lay in 1797.

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mourmipea is the road which leads out of Auchtermuchty towards Pitmedden Forest and was at one time the main road to Perth.

 

 

 

 






The picture above shows part of Mournipea as it is today. The boundary stone forms part of the wall or "dyke" and lies at the base of the tree in the mid-foreground.
