model of the North Church. Amsterdam, the Dutch having a great
deal of intercourse with Burntisland at that date. The galleries,
wLich, show very antique carvine, were erected in 1613, and it was
within these wails that James VI. met the General Assembly of tho
Cnurch of Scotland, and pressed his pet proposal for a now transla-
tion of the Scriptures, a proposal which took practical shape after
that monarch's accession to the throne of England, and resulted in
an authorised version. The reason Burntisland acquired this
storical distinction was because the Forth was so stormv at
basaltic columns. They arc irruptivo through limestone and sand-
stone strata. Tho sandstone quarries at Grange and Newhigging
give out extensive supplies of stone for buildings in the neighbour-
hood, and quantities are shipped at Starleyburn for other places.
Tlie limestone mine, belonging to the Carron Co., at Star1eyhu.ru,
has beeu shut up in the meautime, owing to the depression iu
the iron trade. It was formerly worked on the east hills, and
tho exhausted workings there are objects of interest to the j
tourist, who also finds agreeable walks towards Duncarn, the back
of tho Binn and Kingliorn, both by the new and old roads. Tho
rock which marks the s\)ot where Alexander III. met bis death in
1986, is situated beyond the limits of the parish on the south side of
the new Kingliorn road, and is easily recognised by its ivy mantle.
Burntisland was originally a burgh of regality under tho" Abbot of
Dunfermline. In the year 1541 it was purchasod from him by James
V., and erected into a burgh royal, confirmed by James VI. in 1587,
and renewed by Charles I, in 1632.
The Established church, bearing the date 1592 over its entrance,
is probably the oldest building in the town. In style it is after the
