Excerpt from Topography of Great Britain or British Traveller's Pocket Directory: Being an Accurate and Comprehensive Topographical and Statistical Description of All the Countries in England, Scotland, and Wales, With the Adjacent Islands: Illustrated With Maps of the Countries, Which Form a Complete British Atlas

The Southern Division, with which we shall commence our Topographical Description of Scotland, contains the countries of West Lothian, or Linlithgow; Mid Lothan, or Edinburgh; East Lothian, or Haddington; Berwick, or Merse; Roxburgh; Selkirk; Peebles; Dumfires; Kirkcudbright; Wigton; Ayr; Lanark; and Renfrew.

West Lothian; or Linlithgowshire.

This county is of an irregular form, approaching in some measure to a paralellogram; it is bounded on the north by the forth; on the south-east by the county of Edinburgh; on the south-east by Lanerkshire; and on the north-west by Stirlingshire. It measures nearly twenty miles in length, from east to west; and about twelve from north to south. this is one of the richest counties in Scotland; being finely diversified by hill and dale, by gentle swells and fertile plains: its appearance likewise being enriched by the number of gentlemen's seats, surrounded with woods, and adorned with extensive plantations. Indeed the country between Queensferry and Stirling, (says Mr. Pennant) is not to be paralelled for the elegance and variety of its prospects. The whole is a composition of all that is great and beautiful: towns, villages, seats, and ancients towers, decorate each bank of that fine expanse of water, the Frith of Forth; while the busy scenes of commerce and rural economy, are no small additions to the still life. The lofty mountains of the Highlands form a distant but august boundary towards the north-west; and the eastern view is enlivened with ships perpetually appearing or vanishing, amid the numerous islands.
