TROON is a municipal burgh and 6eaport
in the parish of Dundonald, 75 mi led
south-west from Edinburgh, 31 south-west
from Glasgow, 7 south from Irvine, 9
south-west from Kilmarnock and about 8
north from Ayr, with a terminal etation
on a branch of the Glasgow and South
Western railway. The bay is extensive,
â– and the port also has the advantage of
a secure harbour, into which vessels of
.great burthen can confidently enter with
the wind from almost any point. There
are two superior dry docks for repairing
vessels, large storehouses, a ship-building
j-ard, and a rope and sail manufactory.
Under the provisions of Part I. of the
" Merchant Shipping Act, 1894," 9 vessels
'equal to 1,441 tons register, were registered
.-as belonging to the port, December 31, 1902.
In the general coasting trade 703 vessels
entered in 1902 of 91,550 tons; cleared, 476
-of 54,329 tons. In the intercourse between
Great Britain and Ireland 573 entered,
tonnage, 66,002; cleared, 739, 78,893 ton-
nage. The number of sailing and steam
vessels that entered the port in 1902 was —
British 67, of 65,135 tons, and foreign 20,
of 12,690 tons. The number cleared was —
British 112, 80,864 tonnage, and foreign 31,
•of 17,052 tonnage. The total value of thf
imports in 1902 was £155,621, iron ore
being the principal article, £96,921. The
total value of the exports of British and
Irish produce in 1902 was £74,171, £61,262
-of which was coal. A line of railway from
the extremity of the harbour to Kilmar-
nock conveys immense quantities of coal,
thence shipped to Ireland, France &c.
This place also affords pood boating am 1
-sea bathing, and has become one of the
most popular and healthy watering place;.
on the west coast, so that in summer the
population is nearly trebled. The Ailsa
Shipbuilding Co. Limited carry on a large
shipbuilding business here. The town is
increasing rapidly, and many fine resi-
dences are being erected. The town is
lighted with gas from works now belong-
ing to the Town Council, and new water-
works have been provided at a cost of
£20,000. The British Linen Co.'s Bank
has one branch and the Union Bank of
Scotland two branches here. The Unionist
Club, on Temple hill, erected in 1894, is a
tine building, containing reading and bil-
liard rooms and a spacious hall, in which
entertainments are given; the town
branch of the Union Bank also occupies
part of these premises. The Established
church was erected in 1896, and there are
the Portland and St. Meddans United
Free churches and a Roman Catholic
chapel. Near the town are extensive golf
links, with a club house; there is also a
ladies' golf course and club house. A local
newspaper, the "Troon Herald/' is pub-
lished here on Fridays. The area of the
burgh is 833 acres ; rateable value,
£36,000; the population in 1901 was 4,764
bnrgh, 5,181 ecclesiastical.
Barassie is a sea bathing village, on the
Firth of Clyde, a mile and a half north of
Troon, with a station on the Glasgow and
South Western railway.
