Gazetteer of Scotland
043; 050 A Stream in the N. W. Corner of this Plan. It rises at the base of Loch Fell at the N. Point of Hutton Parish, flows due S. for nearly six miles then taking a sudden bend flows for about one mile E. and again debouching runs permanently SW. for 9 miles when it falls into the Annan at the W. side of this Parish. In fair weather it is merely a trifling stream but otherwise it is subject to sudden and impetuous floods.

Transcriber's notes

I believe the authority listed as as Genl Roy's Roman Antiquities refers to William Roy's book Military Antiquities of the Romans in North Britain published in 1793.
