‘Barns belonging to Struthers’. Blaeu (Pont) East Fife’s Barns seems to represent OS Pathf. Struthers Barns, with S. Barnes further upstream on the Glassy How Burn, towards the south-west. While S. would seem to be for South, it is quite possible, given the many inaccuracies on this map, that it is for Struther Barnes, a doublet of Barns. Alternatively, one or other of these may refer to OS Pathf. Clatto Barns KTT, which lies just under 4 km south-west of Struthers Barns. It is even possible that S. Barnes is for C. Barnes. If so, then it is the only mention of Clatto on this map.
