Kirkmichael Hall

Kirkmichael is a parish in Dumfriesshire, 8½ miles north-east of Dumfries. This place, which derives its name from the dedication of its church to St Michael, includes the ancient parish of Garvald, or Garrel, which, with the exception of some lands now in the parish of Johnstone, was united to it about 1670. It contains the hamlets of Nethermill and Parkgate. The A701 road from Dumfries to Moffat passes through the centre from south-west to north-east.
