CORSTORPHINE is a village and
.parish in the poor combination and small
debt court district of Edinburgh ; the parish,
which begins about 2 miles to the west of
Edinburgh, is generally level, the only emi-
nences being the Corstorphine hills, whxh
>have an altitude of 470 feet above the level
of the sea. The whole parish consists of
rich arable land, part of which is cultivated
<by market gardeners, and there are also
many dairy farms. The village of Corstor-
phine is 3 miles west from Edinburgh, on
'the high road to Glasgow, and has a station
•on the North British railway. The church,
attached in 1429 to a provostry or college,
â– was founded and endowed by Sir Adam
-Forrester, his widow and their son, Sir
John Forrester : it bears their arms on the
outer wall in several places, and within
are. several life-size stone effigies of mem-
bers of this family, occupying niches â–  in
the chancel. At the Public Hall is a good
subscription library of over 2,000 volumes.
Jlillburn Tower is the seat of Sir William
iListon-Foulis bart. J. P. John H. Dickson
and W. Traquair Dickson, who are lords
of the manor, the Earl of Morton and Miss
Ramsay Gibson Maitland, of Barnton, are
the principal landowners. The area com-
prises 3,6.54 acres; rateable value, £18,257;
â– the population in 1831 was 2,332, and in
1901, 2,725, including 1,327 in the village;
population of the ecclesiastical parish.
Gogar, formerly an independent parish, is
a pleasant hamlet in this parish, on the banks
of the Gogar burn, a tributary of the water
of Leith, and 5 miles south-west from Edin-
burgh, with a station, three-quarters of a
mile distant, on the North British railway.
The present church occupies the site of a
â– church existing here previous to the Reform-
Post, T. & M. O. O. & S. B. Corstorphine

E.S.O. Midlothian added). — Margaret
