Wallyford Toll is a roundabout junction on the A199 which sits astride the railway line between Musselburgh and Prestonpans. It is a large oval shaped junction incorporating two bridges over the railway line, and is wide enough for two circulatory lanes. Only the western arm of the A199 has two approach lanes marked for turning traffic. This is perhaps to aid traffic leaving the Wallyford Park & Ride site which lies a short distance west of the junction and is accessed from the A199. There is then a short footpath from the car park to Wallyford railway station.

The junction was originally a skewed crossroads on the A1 (now the A199), with the north eastern arm (now the B1361) being the A198. It was converted to a roundabout in the early 1960s, and is first shown on the OS One Inch map in 1965. Old maps mark a tunnel under the crossroads, suggesting that this was removed when the junction was rebuilt. The A1 was re-routed onto the current dual carriageway bypass of Musselburgh in 1986.
