MONKSTON, a village, in the parish of Collesie, district of Cupar, county of Fife; containing 102 inhabitants. This place appears to have arisen upon the decline of the village of Kinloch, which formerly contained 191 inhabitants, but at present has only 58, the greater number having removed to Monkston. The village is handsomely built, consisting of six detached ranges of four houses each, between which are intervals of a few yards; it is pleasantly situated, forms an agreeable place of residence, and promises rapidly to increase. A school has been opened, and is attended by about thirty scholars; the master is wholly supported by the fees. There is also a Sabbath school.
