J. R0,6n, an excellent and improving seaport, in the parish of Don-
donaM, is situated 75 miles s.w. from Edinburgh, 31 s.w. from Glas-
gow, 7 s. from Irvine, and 9 a.w. from Kilmarnock. Under the
patronage of the Duke of Portland, this place has advanced steadily
to a degree of eminence, and bids fair to become one of the most
• important seaports on the west coast of Scotland. Possessing un-
common natural advantages, in having an extensive bay, and a
secure harbour, into whicli vessels of great burthen can conHdently
entei- with the wind from almost any point. Troon is obviously
destined to attain high rank in maritime estimation. It has two
superior dry docks for repaidug vessels, large storehouses, a light-
house, a ship building yard, and a rope and sail manufactory.
There are two banking establishments and a reading room, all of
which are situated near the harbour. From the extremity of the
harbour directly to Kilmarnock, runs a railway, on which immense
quantities of coal are conveyed from the neighbourhood of the
latter town, and from hence shipped for Ireland, France, &c. The
town is progressively enlarging, and, in addition to the prosperity
derived from its commerce as a port, it enjoys the advantage of
being visited in the bathing season by numerous respectable
lamiiies, for whose accommodation handsome lodging-houses have
been built. The "Portland Arms Hotel" stands deservedly high
in estimation, both as a family and commercial house, and under
the excellent management of Mr. James Robertson, the proprietor,
cannot fail to ensure extensive patronage. The places of worship
are an Established and a Free church, and a chapel for United
Presbyterians: there are two Board schools, and an au3uiiary
school. Population of the quoad sacra parish in 1871, 2,870.
