RATHO,
R.
KIRKLISTON, AND NEIGHBOURHOODS.
tATHO is a small village situated about eight miles w. by s. from
Edinburgh, nearly in the centre of its i^arish, and contiguous to
the Edinbugh and Glasgow Railway and the Union Canal, by
which communication it enjoys a ready access to the capital and
intermediate district. The parish, which is about four miles long
and three broad, lies in the middle between the Pentland hills and
the Frith of Forth. The east part is flat and fertile, but the
ground rises gradually towards the west. Dalmahoy, the principal
residence of the Earl o fMorton, and Hatton, formerly belonging to
the family of Lauderdale, both beautiful and elegant scats, are in
this parish ; these with the plantations of Addison, give a rich and
pleasant aspect to the country. Agriculture is carried on with
apirit and success, of which Mr. M'Knight first set the example.
The Hills of Dalmahoy and Kairaes abound with freestone. The
parish church is rather a handsome building, and the public school
is spacious and well attended. The parish of Rathe; comprises an
area of 6,147 acres, and in 1871 contained a population of 1,744; of
this number the village had 717-
KiUKLisTON is partly in Mid-Lothian, and extends intoLinlith-
gowshu'o; the village is eight miles from Edinburgh, situated on
the left bank of the Almond, on the road to Falkirk. This place was
anciently called Temple-Liston, from the circumstance of the
Knights Templars having formerly had an establishment here.
The village is well built ; it is, however, of but limited trade; dis-
tilling and grinding corn are the principal branches. The church
is neat, and its situation remarkably pleasant. The surface of the
country is agreeably varied by rising ground — is rich, well culti-
vated, and produces excellent crops. Here Lord Stair first intro-
duced the culture of cabbage in the open fields. Within a field on
the east side of the Almond atands a remarkable monument of
antiquity, called the Catstane^ erected at a period too remote for
conjecture. It stands four feet and a half above the ground, and ia
about eleven feet and a half in circumference ; its surface bears a
delapidated inscription, which has puzzled the skill of antiquaries
to decipher. About a mile from Kirkliston is Newliston House,
principally erected and finished by John Earl of Stair, and now the
elegant seat of Thomas Alexander Hog, Esq. The house is handsome
and modern ; the plantations extensive and tastefully disposed.
Area of the parish 9,541 acres; population in 1871, 2,187.
