MEARNS is a parish and village, in
Paisley poor combination and small debt
court district, 7 miles south from Glasgow,
8 south-east from Paisley, and about 3£
south-west from Clarkston Btation on the
Glasgow and Kilbride section of the Cale-
donian railway. The parish lies in the
south-eastern part of the county, and is 7
miles in length by about three in breadth.
The surface of the land is finely diversified
by undulations, rising gradually from east
to west; it is generally fertile. The great
road from Glasgow to Ayr and Kilmar-
nock runs through the whole length of the
parish; and a road has also been opened
from Glasgow, which, passing (Newton
Mearns, joins the former one, near the
Logans Well. The parish is irrigated by
the waters of three lakes, one of which,
named Black Loch, is nearly 2\ miles in cir-
cumference. In the parish are several
bleachfields. Mearns Castle, which stands
on a rocky height near the village, now
consists chiefly of a large square tower
in a dismantled condition, but command-
ing an extensive and beautiful prospect;
it is encompassed by a strong wall, and
the entrance appears to have been once
secured by a drawbridge. It belongs to
Sir M. R, Shaw-Stewart hart, of Ard-
gowan. Pollok Castle stands about 2 miles
north-west of the village on the road to
Pollokshaws. James Crawford Fergusson
Pollok esq. of Pollok Castle, and Sir
[slater's
Michael R. Shaw-Stewart bart. are the
principal landowners. The parish, which
embraces 12,491 acres; rateable value,
£25,S57, in 1891 contained a population
of 3,426, and in 1901, 3,409 in the civil
and 2,141 in the ecclesiastical parish.
[Newton Mearns (or Newton) is a village
in Mearns parish, 3 miles south-west from
GifEnock. Here is the parish church, an
edifice of stone with a tower and spire con-
taining a clock. The church affords 700
sittings. There is a branch here of the-
Union Bank of Scotland Limited and a good
inn. The population in 1901 was 812.
Busby is a small village partly in this
parish and partly in East Kilbride parish,
Lanarkshire, with a station on the Glas-
gow and Kilbride section of the Caledonian
railway, and is 6 miles south from Glas-
gow. Bleaching is carried on here, and
there is a chemical manufactory. The
population in 1901 was 1,786, of which 542
are in Lanarkshire.
