Object Classification

Parish (non-extant in 1975)


McNiven (2011, 142-3): it was united first with Dunblane DXE, which later formed part of Dunblane & Lecropt. The parish was not part of Menteith, unlike Dunblane, but in the earldom of Strathearn. The parish territory was that of the barony of Kilbride until at least the seventeenth century, so the lands of the barony as given when purchased by John Stirling in 1662 give an idea of the extent of the parish. They included the farms of Nether Glastry (NN743051), Dalbrack (NN743051), Grainston (NN758.033). [Presumably also the lands of Kilbryde itself, around Kilbryde Castle.] The western boundary of the parish seems to have been formed by Allt na Criche ('burn of the boundary'), where it marched with Kilmadock parish.
