Report of the Commissioners for Inquiring into Matters
relating to Public Roads in Scotland, 1859

Roads in Counties
The references to the roads in a particular county occur in several different parts of the report. This section provides links to all the references to the roads in each county:
- a thumbnail linked to a county map

- a link to a map of parishes in a county (if map does not appear, try accessing it from the main menu on the Scotland's Family website);
- a link to the page in the Report that gives more details on roads in a county;
- a link to the Notes of Evidence relating to each county (these can also be accessed from this page)
- links to the two abstracts (A & C) dealing with turnpikes and statute labour roads in counties. Some details from the Abstracts are given for each county but further information can be obtained from the original Abstracts by following the links.

A link is also provided to Highland Roads and Bridges

For the other Abstracts, see Appendices.

Note: The county maps are from Arrowsmith's map of Scotland dated 1846; Orkneys and Shetlands from Alexander Johnston's map dated 1861. Images courtesy of David Rumsey Historical Map Collection.
