"Situation The parish belongs to the Synod of Perth and Stirling, and to the presbytery of Stirling. It is bounded on the east by the parish of Airth; on the south by Larbert, Dunipace, and Kilsyth; on the west, by Fintry and Gargunnock; the river Forth, if the small space occupied by the parish of Stirling be excepted, separates it on the north from Kincardine, Lecropt, Logie and Alloa.
Extent The road between Powbridge, the eastern extremity of the parish, and Randyford, the western extremity, measures between 15 and 16 miles: but as the figure of the parish is irregular, its extent may be computed, at a medium, about 10 miles from east to west, and about 6 miles from north to south."
