127 ; 134 [situation] In the County of Clackmannan

The parish of Dollar is in the Presbytery of Stirling, Synod of Perth and Stirling. It contains about 4795 Statute Acres by admeasurement from the Ordnance Plans and is bounded on the north by Glendevon Parish; on the east by the parishes of Muckart and Fossoway; on the South by Clackmannan parish; and on the West by the parish of Tillicoultry.

The land in this parish has, for some years past, been greatly improved by liming and draining. The common duration of leases is fifteen or nineteen years - too short a period certainly for tenants venturing to lay out money in the improvement of the soil. The chief obstacle to improvement in the parish is the unfortunate circumstance, that by far the greater part of the property has, for many years been under trust, or in the market for Sale. The chief mines are Coal which are worked to a great extent in this parish, and supply Strathearn and its neighbourhood with Coals, which are not found anywhere to the north of
