only by summons. Ballantrae is without either fairs or weekly
market. The acreage of the parish is about 33,876, the population
of which in 1871 was 1,277 : population of the village, 515.
CoLMONELL js a parish of about 48,153 acres, bounded on the
north and west by the mouth of the Clyde— the village, a small one,
is situated 5 miles e. by n. of Ballantrae, on the north bank of the
Stiuchar~a stream famed for its salmon and trout. In the viUage
is a board school and an antiburghers' meeting house; there is also
■within the parish a Cameronian place of worship. The extent of
this district is twenty miles in length by nine broad ; it is composed
of good pasture, and is undergoing great improvements. Popula-
tion of the parish in 1871, 2,293.
The picturesque ruins of Craignell, Kirkhill . Rockdolean, Pin-
wherry, Knockdaw and Carleton castles are to be seen in this
parish, i^hich also abL'Unds in lime. The nearest approximation for
persons desirous of visiting the far-famed Ailsa Craig is from
Lendalfoot, in this neighbourhood. Fairs are held here on the
fli-st Mondays in February, May, August, and November (old style);
there are also four quarterly cattle markets at the village of Barb
Hill, seven miles (^stant, in this parish.

ALLA.NTRAE is a small seaport, in the parish of that name,
105 miles s.w. from Edinbui'gh, 68 b.w. from Glasgow, 31 s. of Ayr,
24 N.N.E. of Portpatrick, 18 n. of Stranraer, 13 s. by w. of Girvan,
and 25 s.s.w. of Maybole, situated near the south-western extremity
of the county, and un the banks of the river Stinchar, which here
falls into the Frith of the Clyde. The approach to the town from
Stranraer is over the river, across which is an excellent stone
bridge of throe well-proportioned arches. On the right, near the
bridge, stand the ruins of Ard-Stinchar castle, formerly belonging
to the Hamilton family. The ancient clock, belonging to the tower
now standi]!:!, is still used as the time-keeper for the town. The
place is priiHLpally supijorted by its hshery of salmun and cod fish;
the salmon i,shery belongs to the Earl of Stair, but the village does i
not display Uu; amount of bustle furmeiiy caused by the passing of I
the mail through this place to and from Portpatrick at the period
when the Irish mails were conveyed by that route. Old Kirkcud-
bright kirk, now in ruins, gives a mournful yet pleasing effect to the
Burrouudiug scenery. The present kirk is a neat modern building,
ornamented with stone, in the plain Gothic style. There is one
school in the parish. There is one resident magistrate ; and the
nearest court is held at Girvan, where small debts are recoverable
