IS n parish iq the district of Carrick. The villago is 93 miles s.w.
of Edinburgh (through Maybole and Ayr), 47 s. by w. of Glasgow,

miles than along the coast), 15 s. by e. of Ayr, 7 s. from Maybole,
and G n.n.e. from Girvan. The situation of this village is not
exceeded by any in the country for beauty; it is seated in a line
fertile valley, near to tha pellucid waters of the Girvan, which is fed
by a number of small streams, some of them descending through
deep and woody glens, admired for their picturesque and romantic
loveliness; while the elegant mansions of the affluent that are
interspersed throughout the district, and the hoary ruins of two
ancient castles, contribute to the general interest of the scenery.
The parish is about six miles iuh- n gth by about five in breath, and
contains 17,962 acres ; the uplands are bleak and pastoral, but tho
more level part8 are well cultivated, enclosed and planted. Coal
and limestone abound in several parts of the parish. The celebrated
Ailsa Craig is in the parish. The chief local proprietors are the
Countess of Stair and Sir James Fergusson, of Kilkerran. Tho old
parish church, dedicated to St. Michael has fallen to decay ; the
present structure was erected in 1766. There are two Board schools
in the parish. Population of the parish in 1871, 1,932, and in 1881,
