MUCKHART is a village and parish in
the small debt court district of Dunblane,
about 2 miles north-west from Rumbling
Bridge station on the Alloa and Mawcarse
Junction section of the North British rail-
way, 11 north-east from Alloa and 18 south-
east from Crieff. It is triangular in shape,
about 5 miles in length from east to west,
its greatest breadth from north to south
being about 2i miles. The Devon forms
its principal boundary, separating it from
Fossoway on the south and east, while on
the north and west two small streams res^
pectively divide it from Glendevon and
Dollar. A branch of the Ochil hills runB
east and west along the northern boundary
of the parish, terminating on the east by a
conical-shaped hill called " Sea-mab," 1,442
feet above eea level. The Devon in this
neighbourhood creates a number of in
teresting waterfalls, amongst which are the
falls of Rumbling Bridge, Devil's Mill and
Caldron Linn. The water passes through
fissures in the rocks, which in many places
present the appearance of having been rent
asunder. When viewed from the parapet
of the Rumbling Bridge, 120 feet above the
level of the river and over 500 feet above
the eea level, the scenery beneath, on both
sides, is very striking, and since the
opening of "the Devon Yallev branch
of the North British railway, for
which there as a station at Rumbling
Bridge, this locality has become much
frequented. In 1645, every house in
Muckhart parish, including the church, was
burnt by the Marquess of Montrose, when
he sacked and destroyed Castle Campbell,
PERTHSHIRE,
at that time belonging to the Earl of Argyll.
Besides the parish church, which is at the
small village of Pool, there is also a United
Free church. Miss Christie of Cowden
Castle ; Alexander Price Haig esq. of
Blairhill; John James Moubray esq.
M.A., J.P. of Nae Moor; John Hutcheson
Kerr esq. of Harviestoun C'astle, and James
McArthur Moir esq. of Lawhill, are the
principal landowners. The soil of Muckhart
is in general light and gravelly, but in some
parts it is more retentive. The area is
4,028 acres; the rateable value, £5,316;
population in 1891, 542, and in 1901, 475.

seat of Robert Thomas Napier Speir esq.
