Drumeldrie Muir, Fifeshire

Historical Description

DRUMELDRIE-MUIR, a village, in the parish of Newburn, district of St. Andrew's, county of Fife, 1¼ mile (E.) from Largo; containing 82 inhabitants. The name of the parish was anciently Drumeldrie, changed to Newburn from the circumstance, it is said, of a small rivulet in the parish having altered its course. The village is situated about half a mile distant from the shore of Largo bay, and on the high road from Largo to Elie: a little to the north-east is the moor.
