KIXLEAB.ET is a parish in Stirling poor
combination and small debt court district,
and is 12 miles long by an average breadth
of 2£, the river Endrick, with the parish
of Balfron, forming its northern boundary.
It is bounded on the east by Fintry, on
the south by Strathblane and the parish
of New Kilpatrick, and on the west by
Drymen, in Dumbartonshire. The land is
fertile, and is watered by the Endrick and
the Blane. The village is almost in the
centre of the parish, in a pleasant part of
the country, and has two stations, Dun-
goyne station, about 2 miles south-west, and
Killearn station, 1J miles -west, on the
Glasgow and Aberfoyle section of the North
British railway, 30 miles west from Edin-
burgh, 20 south-west from 'Stirling, and
nearly 17 north-by-west from Glasgow. The
village is supplied with water by Alexander
Buchanan esq. The church, a handsome
structure, was built by the late Sir Archi-
bald Orr-Ewing bart. of Ballikinrain, in
memory of his daughter, at a cost of £8,000,
and presented to the parish. The old church
is now used as a public hall. The minerals
in the district are chiefly limestone and free-
stone, and beautiful specimens of jasper are
occasionally met with among the fragments
of basaltic columns which abound here.
The woods produce great numbers of indi-
genous plants. Considerable interest is
attached to this part of the country as
having been the birthplace or residence of
men eminent in the biography of Scotland.
In its more secluded recesses, Sir William
Wallace was known to have occasionally
found a retreat, and it was the birthplace,
in 1506, of George Buchanan, the cele-
brated poet and historian, tutor to James
VI. and principal of St. Leonard's College,
St. Andrews, who died in Dec. 1582; he
was born at a place called The Moss, a small
farmhouse on the bank of the Water of
Blane, about two miles from the village of
Killearn. In the village is an obelisk of
freestone, 19 feet square at the base and
103 feet in height, erected to his memory in
1788. Ballikinrain Castle is the seat of
Archibald Ernest Orr-Ewing esq. D.L..J.P.
and Killearn House, the seat of Lt.-Col.
Peter Blackburn. Acreage of the parish,
