Location: From Sherbrooke take Route 143 south to Lennoxville. Then take route 108 East. Stay on this road passing through Cookshire, Bury and Gould. Continue through Sainte Marguerite de Lingwick toward Stornoway. After a few miles watch for a road on your right called Tolsta Road. Stay on Route 108 and shortly after viewing Tolsta Road you will see a farm on the right and beside it a large sign saying Tolsta Cemetery. You will have to drive along the edge of the farm, open a gate and continue through a pasture to get to the cemetery which you can see in the distance. 

This is another of the Scottish cemeteries scattered about Frontenac County in the area once known as Tolsta, named after Tolsta, Isle of Lewis, Hebrides, Scotland. It was nicely mowed, had a fence and a gate. Susan Nutbrown and I last visited this cemetery in November 2016 and recorded all tombstones.
