The village of Restalrig in c1883

Cut off on the south by the line
of the North British Railway, and partially by the
water of Lochend on the west, lies the still secluded
village of Restalrig, which, though in the immediate
vicinity of the city, seems, somehow, to have
fallen so completely out of sight, that a vast portion
of the inhabitants appear scarcely to be aware
of its existence ; yet it teems with antiquarian and
historical memories, and possesses an example of
ecclesiastical architecture the complete restoration
of which has been the desire of many generations
of men of taste, and in favour of which the late
David Laing wrote strongly—the ancient church
of St. Triduana.
