Description

Tour Scotland video of old photographs of Dysart on the coast of Fife. The first record of the town was made in the early 13th century, its initial role being to settle civil matters between the church and landowners. During the middle of the 15th century, trade with the Low Countries began for salt and coal exportation. In the 16th and 17th centuries, trade expanded to the Baltic Countries. Dysart acquired two nicknames: Salt Burgh and Little Holland as a result. The harbour was later extensively rebuilt in 1829 with the assistance of Robert Stephenson, to include an inner basin with a nearby quarry at the harbour head and an extension of the east pier which would be raised and pointed southwards. The Outlander TV series filmed at the Inner Harbour. Of interest to folks with ancestry, genealogy or Scottish Family Roots in Scotland who may wish to visit one day.
