025 "This parish takes its name from the small river that runs along its north-east boundary, and according to Chalmers, in his Caledonia, the water of Bervie derives its name from the British Beru to flow, Berw, Berwy, a boiling or abullition. This etymology corresponds exactly with the character of the stream. A distinction between the name of the parish and the burgh may be marked by the Gaelic word Inver, which indicates the Situation of the of the town by its signification, and ought to be applied to the burgh only.
The extent of the parish in length is about 2 miles, and in breadth about 1 1/2. Its figure is quadrilateral. It is bounded towards the South and South west by the parish of Benholme, the north west by the parish of Garvock, the north and north east by the parish of Arbuthnott; the east by the parish of Kinneff; and its boundary on the South east is the German Ocean."
