002 ; 003 [Situation] On the South Side of the Firth of Forth
A very Small parish on the coast of the Firth of Forth in the Co. [County] Linlithgow bounded on the north by the firth and on all other sides by Dalmeny. Even the parliamentary boundaries of the burgh enclose a mere stripe along the beach extending from an old quarry on the east to Echland Burn on the west an area of only a mile in extreme length and not more than about 250 yards in mean breadth, But the parochial territory comprehends not above one half of this area it is coextensive with the royalty and excludes parts of both ends of the town. As a territory it is in no part landward and in description it becomes identified with the burgh. A chapel of ease was anciently built here by Dundas of Dundas and still figures as an antiquity of the town. But the little district was separated from Dalmeny and erected into a parish only in 1636. It is in the presbytery of Linlithgow and Synod of Lothian
