006.04 This loch is now so mingled with the cultivated ground around, that its original bounds are entirely obliterated. From the drain to the Ph.[Parish] boundary it is at present under cultivation. the ara. [arable] field south of the drain is recognised as part of the loch, but further south than this, is not remembered. The portion in Cadder Parish is better defined, owing to the ground in it being kept for coarse meadow land. It is however intended to cultivate that also. There is a tradition in the heighbourhood, that Sir Wm. [William] Wallace threw his sword into this loch, after he was betrayed, "before his hands were bound." He was taken at Robroyston - about 1/2 amile distant from the loch. See descritpion in Name Sheets of adjoning parishes.
