GLENBUCK, a village, in the parish of Muirkirk, district of Kyle, county of Ayr, 3½ miles (N. E. by E.) from Muirkirk; containing 237 inhabitants. This place, which is situated in the extreme east of the parish, and north of the high road from Muirkirk, was an appendage to considerable iron-works, erected in 1794, by an English company; but these works having been discontinued in 1813, the village has since fallen greatly into decay. The Ayr river flows at a short distance on the south; and connected with it are two artificial lakes or reservoirs, which were formed about 1802, by the Messrs. Finlay, of Glasgow, to supply their cotton-factories at Catrine, in the parish of Sorn. In the village is a school.
