Kirkdominae  Ayrshire


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

Kirkdominæ, an ancient chapelry in Carrick district, Ayrshire, within the part of the ancient parish of Girvan which, in 1653, became the parish of Barr. Its church, crowning an eminence on the right bank of the Stinchar, 1¾ mile SW of Barr village, belonged to Crossraguel Abbey, and was partly taken down as building material for Barr church, but is still represented by some ruins. A well, approached by an archway, adjoins the ruins; and an annual fair, till a recent period, was held on the ground around.—Ord. Sur., sh. 8, 1863.
