Noran Water [note]
"The water of Noran is so peculiarly limpid, that
there is yet a tradition that one of our queens, in
olden times, washed her cutch or cap in its stream, near the place where the farm-house of
Nether Careston is now situated & pronounced the Noran to be the clearest stream in Scotland"
