A township, built around the center hulk of one of Scotland's first cotton mills. The mill, which was a grim heavy building surrounded by a high wall, completely overshadowed the centre of the town. Both building and wall have now gone and in their place is a wide, paved public square with trees, public benches and flower beds.

Nearby, are the grounds of Ballochmyle House, well known to Robert Burns.
