Carsphairn is a parish of 80 square miles, with a population of less than 200, set between the Rhinns of Kells and the imposing mass of the Cairnsmore of Carsphairn which towers above some of the most remote hills in this area.
Farming was the main use of land here but now a greater part is afforested, with only a few farms left.
There are now 38 houses, a School, a Church, and a Shop and Post Office in Carsphairn Village. A windfarm has recently been developed tucked away in the hills outside Carsphairn Village on the hill called Windy Standard.
