The name Tolbooth is Scots & refers to The Town Hall, but in past times this was where you paid your taxes or toll. This one has been converted to a hotel which has seen better days. In most Scottish towns you will encounter the name Tolbooth usually a street name or monument.
An old saying still in use today. As the sign for the Banff Preservation Society proclaims.
Keeping history alive & directing people to Duff House - what a good idea.
Again a Scots tradition in old towns & cities. The Mercat Cross is usually found in a square which once held an outdoor market.
The Royal Burgh of Banff Coat of Arms has an intricate design & I would assume has something to do with King Malcolm's family.
I like when a town or village takes time & effort to create a nice display. Not only uplifting for locals but for tourist as well.
A plumber named George Chalmers from Edinburgh bequeathed money to build a hospital in Banff in 1860. The hospital is still going strong & is a very impressive building
Found this old Methodist Church which carries the famous name Wesley (John & Charles)
John was a preacher & Charles a Hymn writer = Charles is the famous one ie. no one really listens to preachers!!
