Ballingry Parish


A parish in W Fife to the south of Benarty Hill, Ballingry was sometimes referred to as the parish of Inchgall.

Formerly an agricultural parish, its landscape was transformed by deep-seam coal mining which began in 1870 and ceased in 1966. During this period the small hamlets of Kirkton of Ballingry, Lochore, Crosshill and Glencraig amalgamated into one large mining township.

The Lochty Burn and the River Ore rise in Ballingry Parish.
