GLENBUCK, a village in the parish of Muirkirk, district of Kyle, Ayrshire. It stands in a wild and secluded situation among the mountains, near the road between Ayr and Edinburgh. Some ironworks in its vicinity, erected and for some time carried on by an English company, occasioned its being built for the housing of the miners. But the works having, a considerable period ago, been abandoned, the village has been falling into decay.
