4* south from Fairlie, and 4 north-west

on all sides by rising grounds, which on the

a company. The scenery around is bold
and romantic. There are branches here

Clubs. In the parish is an Established
church, a Roman Catholic and two United
Free churches and a Parochial Cemetery.
Near the village are the ruins of Law
Castle and Porten Cross, and off the eea
line of the parish one of the largest vessels
of the Spanish Armada still remains sunk
in ten fathoms of water. An attempt was
made about a century a<ro to examine the
internal condition of this ship, and the
operation so far succeeded that a piece
of ordnance was raised from her hulk.
The principal landowners are Lady Sophia
Constance Montgomerie, of South Annan
House, Fairlie; Lieut. -Col. Gould Hunter-
Weston F.S.A. of Hunterston; the trus-
tees of the late Henry C. Hyndman esq.
of Springside ; William Graham esq. of
Crosbie Tower; William Adams esq. of
Overton and Porten Cross, and the trustees
of the late James Arthur Carlung esq.
