I. A seaport town and the capital of the isle of Man, on the E. coast, at the junction of the rivers Dhoo and Glass; pop. in 1871, 13,972. It is a watering place of much resort, and has a harbor capable of admitting vessels of 10 or 12 ft. draught at high water, and a pier 520 ft. long. Steamers from Liverpool, Glasgow, and various ports of Ireland often touch here. Ship building is carried on to some extent, and many of the inhabitants are employed in the coasting trade and the fisheries. The old town is on the S. W. shore of the bay; the new is on terraces rising beyond. The most interesting buildings are Castle Mona (now converted into a hotel) and the "Tower of Refuge," which is on a danger- ous rock in the bay. II. A village and parish of Lanarkshire, Scotland, on a river of the same name, 7 m. S. by W. of Lanark; pop. of the parish about 2,500. The parish is owned almost entirely by the heir at law of the Douglas family, who takes from this place his title of baron. The duke of Hamilton is marquis of Douglas. Near the village are the ruins of the ancient church of St. Bride, noted for its numerous family tombs; also Douglas castle, the Castle Dangerous of Scott's novel, built in 1760 on the site of the ancient one, which had been destroyed by fire.
