134.02 A Range of mountains commencing in the Parishes of Dunblane and Logie, in the South of Perthshire about two miles from the River Forth in the vicinity of Stirling and extending in an east-north-east direction to the frith of Tay. Its length is 24 miles or so, and its average breadth about twelve. Two of the summits overlooking the Forth are Bencleugh, or the Hill of Alva, the loftiest of this Range - and Demyat-Hill, in the parish of Logie - advancing a little from the contiguous range, breaking almost sheer down in stupendous rocky cliffs into the plain, and commanding a fine prospect over the basin of the Forth. Most of the Range is of a beautiful Green and affords excellent sheep-pasturage. The main range is unusually rich in its minerals & coal is found in abundance at its base.
