Old Gallows Road
Mr Frazer. Farmer West Lamberkine
Andrew Oswald Dupplin
097 [Situation] At the north end of the parish.
This is part of an old road which led from the west side of the City of Perth and extended to Crieff. The part of it within this parish is now entirely disused and grown over with furze. In older times when Capital punishment was much more frequent than of late days, the Prisoner sentenced to death at the Courts of Justice in Perth were brought out along part of this road and executed on a rising ground on one side of the road which gave rise to the name. Some people assert that this was a Roman Road.
