Minishant - photo by Brian Wotherspoon

"Minishant is situated about two miles north of Maybole -a charming, straggling village in the lee of Brown Carrick Hill. Henrietta and Hugh Douglas have dug deeply into the past to uncover details of the days when this was the granary of the monks of Crossraguel Abbey, when Kennedys and Mures fought fiercely for power and when the village became a busy little place with two woollen mills." Review of the book Minishant is a bonnie wee place. Portrait of a Village.
