This latter is the principal stream in the Parish, and rises out of Correen Hill, and flowing for about a mile in a North easterly direction, it forms the Western boundary of this Parish and then running nearly due east through the centre of the Parish, falls into the Urie. The popular North Country ballad "The Gady Rins," derives its name from this stream. A good County road leading from Inverness to Edinburgh, passes through the Parish.
"By letters of gift and donation, from King James IV of Scotland dated the 16th June 1501, the town and village of Clatt, was erected into a free Burgh of Barony with all the rights and privileges thereof. The Church is in the centre of the parish, in a Market Town, which is a burgh of Barony, and has a weekly Market and a yearly fair, called St Molloch's Fair, appointed to continue for eight days." Extracts from Collections of the Shires, 1843, page 620.
