KELLIE AND ITS NEIGHBOURHOOD. Returning to the road, and proceeding northwards, we pass by and by the entrance to Balcaskie. A little further on the road divides, that to the left leading to Colinsburgh. Following the other, we very soon cross the Dreel Burn at Balcormo Mill. Further up the valley is Kellie Mill, the scene of Mrs. Oliphant's Katie Stewart. But keeping on our way, we come to Balcormo, on the right side of the road.
