The Parish of Tynron includes the Shinnel Glen, part of the Scaur Glen and the village of Tynron (also known as Tynron Kirk). Tynron Doon dominates the area. This dramatic landmark is of considerable geological interest and is steeped in history.
The 2007 electoral regster lists 130 people.
Tynron is fortunate to retain several areas of designated ancient woodland, such as Kirkland, Craigturra, Hulston and Aird, with their beech, oak and other protected species.The juniper wood at Ford is a nature conservation site of international importance, and Stenhouse Wood is under the care of the Scottish Wildlife Trust.
Tynron itself is a tiny, unspoilt village of listed cottages overlooked by a small, quirky kirk designed by William Burn in 1837. The kirk ceased to be used as a parish church in 1997 and was subsequently sold.
In recognition of its architectural heritage, the village of Tynron Kirk has been designated a Conservation Area for planning purposes.
