053 This stream so often described has its source in Loch Doon [from] which it escapes through the [avenue of] rocky channels described in the Name Sheet containing Bridge of [Doon.] Its course through Craigs of [Ness] is rapid & noisy. From this [point] it passes through several [Craigs] into Bogton Loch, which is principally formed by [the] water from the river, and soon [after] glides smoothly past the village [of] Waterside & Patna. Its passage from Patna to its junction with [the] sea, three miles S. [South] of Ayr, [has] a slow winding course, [through] tame but finely-wooded [land.] It forms the boundary between [the] Ph's. [Parishes] of Straiton, Dalmellington & [Dalrymple] for a distance of ten miles.
