The length of the parish is about 7 miles: its irregular breadth may average two. The river Avon descending towards the north east, till it turns to the north and west, not far from Linlithgow Bridge, bounds its extreme length on the south east, and forms the border of its breadth on the north east, separating it from the parishes of Slamannan Torphichen, Linlithgow, and Borrowstounness, till it meets with the rivulets which form its less apparent division from Polmont, and Slamannan on the north west and west. Falkirk, though 5 miles distant, is the market town for the parish, rather than Linlithgow, which is distant but 3. The church and manse were built within these 30 years and are sufficient and in good repair; but the former, being within two miles of the east end, and six of the west, is, especially in bad weather, inaccessible to many. It may accommodate 600. The glebe is worth about 12£ a year. The stipend, chiefly money, from 240£ to 260£. Statistical Account dated 1841.
The parish contains about 8015 Statute Acres. There are no detached portions of this parish, nor are there any detached portions of any other parish situated within it.
