034 A Burn which rises on the Estate of Turin in Aberlemno Ph. [Parish], and is in the first part of its course called "Battle Burn", and afterwards "Pow Burn". It bears the former name from the point where it rises to "Woodside" in Montroman Muir, changing to "Pow Burn" from the point where it is joined by "Rough Moss Burn" and is derived from a battle which tradition, as stated in the New Statl. [Statistical] Account, says was fought at a place called the Battle Drum & the Battle Well some distance to the west of the place the Battle Burn crosses the Arbroath & Brechin Road. The Name "The Pow" is erroneously applied to this stream where it is understood to the personal authorities as the Battle Burn, on the Estate Map. It is the principal source of the Pow - which see, properly "Pow Burn" (Trace 5.34-10)
