en Glassy How + Sc burn

It has this name as it flows below the slope of Glassy How, but only as far as its confluence with Craighall Burn at the above NGR. The burn appears in 1310 × 1327 as the ‘aqu<a> de Hothirstrothyr’ i.e. ‘water of Struthers’ (SAUL MS 37490, no. 1, for text see CER Introduction). It is one of the two burns, the other being the Craigrothie Burn, that underlie the name Struthers, ‘upland between burns’ (see Struthers CER).
