The Parish of Carsphairn is around 100 square miles in size, and currently has a population of around 200 people. The village itself is on the main A713 road between Ayr and Castle Douglas.

The parish is situated on the sloping side of that mountainous ridge which separates Kirkcudbrightshire from Ayrshire, and has a southern exposure. On the north it is bounded by the parishes of Dalmellington and New Cumnock; on the east, by the parish of St John's Town of Dalry; on the south by Kells and on the west and southwest by the parishes of Straiton and Minnigaff.
This area is a beautiful wild landscape much frequented by those who wish to see wildlife and the hills.
