Description

Excerpt from The Geography of the British Empire: Physical, Political, Commercial Ayrshire, sometimes called the Dairy of Scotland, em braces a pastoral tract of country in the south and east, but includes a manufacturing and coal-mining district in the north and along the sea-coast. Its county town, ayr at the mouth of the River Ayr, has a considerable trade. Robert Burns was born in its vicinity - a short way to the southward, in a cottage beside the stream of the Doon. Kilmarnock, on the River Irvine, has extensive woollen manufactures, large ironworks, and machinery factories. Ardrossan, Irvine, Saltcoats, Troon, Girvan, and Ballantrae are thriving ports on the Ayrshire coast. Lanarkshire includes Clydesdale, the upper part of which is a pastoral region. But its lower portion is a populous seat of manufacturing and commercial industry. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
