027.03 "The largest of these (Burns) is that which rises on the heights of Garvock and Collecting the waters from about eight Square miles, issues through the romantic Den Finella to the Sea, near the east end of the Parish, and is chiefly noticeable on account of the beauty of the Scenery in the neighbourhood of a waterfall which occurs near its termination." ( New Stat. Acc. [Statistical Account] P. [page] 272)
"It ought to be stated that the little romantic valley called Den Finella is upon the property of Lauriston, and tradition affirms that it was so called because Lady Finella, the reputed assassin of King Kenneth III was overtaken here by her pursuers, when rather than fall into their hands, she committed self destruction by leaping from the rocks into a deep gully, where the water tumbles from a height of about 150 feet." ( Memorials of Angus & Mearns P. [page] 375.)
A name given to a large glen through which a small stream flows. Near its Southern extremity it is planted on each side, the slopes here are very steep and the rocks precipitous. The name is well known though scarcely any two persons spell it with the same letters i.e. Finella or Fenella, for further information on the Lady's name see extracts on Kincardine Castle relating to the Murder of King Kenneth III, also "Strath Finella", and Strathfinella Hill.
