Carmyle  Lanarkshire


In 1882-4, Frances Groome's Ordnance Gazetteer of Scotland described Carmyle like this:

Carmyle (Gael. cathair-maol, 'bare town'), a village on the SW border of Old Monkland parish, Lanarkshire, on the right bank of the Clyde, adjacent to the Rutherglen, Baillieston, and Coatbridge branch of the Caledonian railway, 1½ mile NNE of Cambuslang, and 4½ miles SSE of Glasgow. ...

Occupying a beautiful site, amid charming environs, it originated in a muslin manufactory, erected about 1741; it presents a straggling rural appearance, with intermixture of gardenplots and trees; and it has a station on the railway, and old-fashioned meal-mills, with foaming dams. Pop. (1841) 238, (1861) 506, (1871) 462, (1881) 536.
