MENSTRIE, a village, in the parish of Logie, county of Clackmannan, 5 miles (E. N. E.) from Stirling, containing 518 inhabitants. This place lies on the road from Logie to Alva, and at the foot of the Ochils; and is the largest village in the parish, and in a flourishing condition. It has a woollen-manufactory, employing about fifty hands, in which, among other articles, serges and blankets are made; and at Dolls, in the vicinity, is a distillery. There is an excellent supply of water, affording an inducement for the establishment of works; and a good trade is already carried on. Menstrie House was formerly the patrimonial property of the family of Alexander, earls of Stirling. The church is situated about two miles from the village. A school is partly supported by an allowance from Lord Abercromby.
