"The church is situated as nearly as possible in the centre on the parish, and the manse about a mile to the southeast. To the west, there is a beautiful range of hills, part of which is covered with wood, and part affords excellent pasturage for sheep and cattle. From the top of these hills is seen, in great beauty and splendour, the town of Dumfries, which to the eye of the beholder, lies immediately below....

It extends from east to west about 5 miles, and at an average is about 3 in breadth. Its boundaries are, Holywood on the north; Troqueer on the south and east; Lochrutton on the west; and Kirkpatrick Irongray on the north-west."

Rev. George Heron, Minister, New Statistical Account, Blackwood.
