BORELAND, a village, in the parish of Dysart, district of Kirkcaldy, county of Fife, ½ a mile (N. by E.) from Dysart; containing 193 inhabitants. This place, which is situated about half a mile to the south-east of the village of Gallaton, was built about the middle of the last century, and is chiefly inhabited by persons employed in the collieries in the neighbourhood, which were formerly carried on to a much greater extent than at present. Since the limitation of those works, within the last twenty years, the population of this village has diminished from more than 300 to its present number. A school has been endowed, the master of which has a schoolroom and dwelling-house rentfree, a supply of coal, and a salary.
