It extends in length about 4¾ miles from N.E. to S.W., with an extreme breadth of 2¾ miles, and is bounded by Dumfriesshire and by Troqueer, Lochrutton, and Kirkpatrick Irongray.

This parish is in the presbytery and synod of Dumfries. The stipend of the minister is about £158. The parish church was erected in 1799. There is a parochial school.
