Isle Toll  Dumfries Shire


In 1882-4, Frances Groome's Ordnance Gazetteer of Scotland described Isle Toll like this:

Isle-Toll, a place with a post office under Dumfries, in Kirkmahoe parish, Dumfriesshire, near the right bank of the Nith, 2½ miles SSE of Auldgirth. Isle or Isle Tower, near it, is a modern mansion, whose owner, Joseph Gillon-Fergusson, Esq. (b. 1848; suc. 1879), holds 1009 acres in the shire, valued at £1119 per annum.—Ord. ...

Sur., sh. 9, 1863. Issay, a fertile island (1 x 1/3 mile) of Duirinish parish, Isle of Skye, Inverness-shire, in Dunvegan Bay, opposite the middle of Vaternish. It is called also Ellan-Issa or the Island of Jesus.

The location is uncertain, but based on the descriptions given bu Bartholomew and Groome, i.e. on the main road near Isle Tower.
