> IRKMICH AEL is a parish in the district of Car-
rick — The village is 76 miles s.w. from Edinburgh, 22

E. of Dalmellington, 8 n e. of Dailiy, 4 w. by n. from
Straiton, and 3f E. from Maybole, pleasantly situated
in a valley, on the road from Newton-Stewart to Glas-
gow, 36 miles from the former, and 44 from the latter.
The general surface of this paiishis hilly— towards the
south and east mountainous and tockj ; bin the whole is
more or less cultivated. The Girvan runs through the
parish — the Doou is its boundary for several miles, and
the Dyrock water flows through the village — which lat-
ter derives its name from a church that, formerly stood
here, de-licked to St. Michael; the present religions
structure, which is neat and commodious-, was built in
1787, on its site. In the churchyard is the tomb of
Gilbert M' Adam, who was shot, in 1685, by the laiid
of Colzean and Ballockmyle, for his adherence to the
covenanters. The annual fair is held on the firs' 'i'hurs-
day in October. The population of the parish (includ-
ing the small village of CROSS-HiLLin 1841, was 2,933,
in 1851, 3.262.

Doon, 4 miles n. from Kirkmichael. The parish, which
is about eight miles at its extreme length, and tines m
breadth, occupies some beautiful undulating and flat
land, mostly arable. In the upper portion of the parish
is a coal mine, and in some other parts lime abounds!
The name Dalrymple is said to be derived from Dairy-
mole, ' signifying the da eon which the king na- siainj
and it is suppose! that Codus, a king of the Britons,
was killed in battle in ihis place; its Gaelic name, howj
ever, was Dail- a-Chruim- Puiti, or ' dae of the crooked
pool.' Near the Roman road, which intersects the
parish, was found in a moss, a vessel of Roman bronze,
bv antiquarians c^njectuied to be of that kind u-ed by
by tin ir priests in their sacrificial oblations; and iu
1834 was di-coer d, i.eai 'he same spot, an ancient
vase, both these relics aie in the possession of the Rev.
Mr. Wallace, the minister of Dalrymple. In the parish
are time British fortleis on commanding sites, and the
ruins of three castles; these, with the. beautiful loch of
Martanham, the waters of which are covered ai ally
with the yellow and white water lilly, are objects of I
considerable intet est aud curiosity with the visitor to
this district.
