EVANTON, a village, in the parish of Kiltearn, county of Ross and Cromarty; containing 462 inhabitants. This village had no existence five-and-thirty years ago; it is built upon a waste piece of land, consists of about a hundred houses, and is of very regular and neat appearance. Two fairs, neither of them well attended, owing to the convenient supply of necessaries from the shops in the village, are held on the first Tuesdays in June and December. The United Secession have a place of worship here; and there is a school.
