CREEBRIDGE, a village, in the parish of Minnigaff, stewartry of Kirkcudbright, ½ a mile (E.) from Newton-Stewart; containing 262 inhabitants. This place consists of a street of good houses, recently built near a bridge over the Cree, and about a quarter of a mile below the village of Minnigaff. The bridge, from which it takes its name, is a handsome structure of granite, of five arches. The Cree rises on the border of Ayrshire, and for several miles of its course is inconsiderable, but increased by tributary streams, it changes its appearance, and, pursuing its way through a beautiful valley, empties itself into the bay of Wigton. It is navigable for some miles.
