026; 033 "The figure of the parish is rather irregular, but may be more properly described as rectangular than in any other way, being nearly 3 miles in length, and 2½ in breadth. It is bounded on the south by Covington; on the west by Carmichael; on the north-west by a small portion of Lanark; on the north by Carstairs and Carnwath; and on the east by Liberton. From the four last mentioned parishes it is separated by the Clyde."
"The nearest town is that of Carnwath, at the distance of 3 miles; but in consequence of the Clyde intervening and the river being frequently impassable, particularly in winter, the inhabitants generally resorted to Lanark, at the distance of 5½ miles having easy access to it by a bridge over the Clyde at Hyndford."
"The only turnpike road connected with the parish is that leading from Carlisle to Stirling, which passes merely through a corner of the parish."
"There are no chapels of any description in the parish, the whole population being connected with the church, except four or five individuals."
