In 1910, with the Railway still a very recent arrival, John Corrie sketched this warm and lively history of the parish of Glencairn. Drawing on local records, knowledge and support he traced the cultural life of this place - 'long ...famous alike for its natural beauty and for its rich historic interest' - from its geological origins to a thriving parish, with good housing, gas and electric lighting, societies and clubs, and improving postal services, looking forward to a bright future. In between there is a rich mix of detail - on place-names, archaeology and antiquities, the Church before and after the Reformation, the Covenanters, John Knox and Education, the 1715 and 1745 Rebellions, Robert Burns, local industries, historic families, famous sons and daughters, and the village of Moniaive. And all from the perspective of the local people and their lives amid change.
