Canal Burn 1866 OS 6 inch 1st edn.

This burn, which flows from Kilbagie into the Forth, forms the parish boundary between Tulliallan and Clackmannan, and the county boundary between Fife (formerly Perthshire) and Clackmannanshire. The name indicates that it has been artificially deepened and perhaps also straightened, although its modern course is straight only in its upper reaches.
