MOLLENSBURN, a village, in that part of the parish of Cadder which formed the late quoad sacra parish of Chryston, Lower ward of the county of Lanark, 1½ mile (N. E. by E.) from the village of Chryston; containing 202 inhabitants. This place is in the extreme east of the parish, and on the high road from Perth to Glasgow; it is neatly built, and from its pleasant situation and many advantages is likely to increase in population and importance. The district abounds with wood and water; and excellent whinstone is prevalent in the neighbourhood, and is quarried for building and other purposes. The inhabitants are chiefly engaged in agriculture and in the quarries.
