Hardgate


Hardgate
   1) HARDGATE, a village, in that part of the parish of Old Kilpatrick which formed the quoad sacra parish of Duntocher, county of Dumbarton, 2 miles (E.) from Old Kilpatrick; containing 467 inhabitants. This is one of numerous thriving villages which have sprung up in this great manufacturing district within the present century. It arose in the erection of the mill here, in 1831, for spinning and weaving cotton, by Mr. Dunn, a large proprietor of land in this quarter, and the enterprising founder of several other mills and works in the vicinity. The villages of Hardgate, Duntocher, Faifley, and Milton, in which Mr. Dunn has considerable establishments, are all within less than a mile of each other, and border on the Frith of Clyde, which flows on the south of the parish.
   2) HARDGATE, a hamlet, in the parish of Urr, stewartry of Kirkcudbright, 5½ miles (N. E.) from Castle-Douglas; containing 46 inhabitants. It lies in the centre of the parish, a short distance northward of the church.
