History

The names Cogry and Kilbride come from Irish : Coigríoch, meaning "border-land, frontier" [2] and Cill Bhríde meaning "Bríd's church". [3] Kilbride is also called Burnside as it is beside a small river (or "burn"). The "Cogry Burn" forms a narrow, wooded corridor through the village centre and the mill buildings at the foot of the valley slopes are a prominent landmark to the south of the village.

Cogry was originally a mill village built and owned by the McMeekin family during the mid 19th century, who also owned Cogry Mill. But it declined in the 1950s with the closure of the mill, The mill has since been purchased in 2019 by a property developer but the site currently lies dormant. In recent years the village has been revitalised by housing development. As the two settlements are so close they are often treated as one.
