Ross, Little

   ROSS, LITTLE, an isle, in the parish of Borgue, stewartry of Kirkcudbright, 4 miles (S. by W.) from Kirkcudbright. This is a very small islet situated at the mouth of the bay or sound of Kirkcudbright, the entrance between it and the eastern shore being about a mile and a half across; it is safe and bold on both sides; and there is here a secure and commodious harbour. The island being deemed an eligible site for a lighthouse, one was commenced, in 1840, by the Commissioners of Northern Lights; and it has proved of considerable advantage to vessels navigating the Solway Frith. Fine views are had from the isle.
