Sanquhar lies in the valley of the River Nith, one of the main routes from central to southern Scotland through much of history. Today, Nithsdale is followed by the A76 from Dumfries to Kilmarnock and Ayr. Today's Sanquhar has an different feel. Not quite an agricultural market town, nor a typical rural industrial centre of the sort quite common to the north in Ayrshire. Instead it is a little of both.
