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.

 

In the village  there is a Shop with Tea Room and attractive Tea Garden, Primary School, Church, Village Hall, a Community Garden and Heritage Centre.

 


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.
