037 A pretty large stream or River having its source in Forfar Loch And flowing in a westerly direction to it meets the Isla water and thence into the River Tay
"This stream forms the northern boundary of the parish, and as its name is said to import, is of considerable depth, and has scarcely a perceptible current. On the south side, it is strongly embanked; but, owing to the frequent bends in its course, it often, in winter, breaks through the embankment and inundates the neighbouring fields".
