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.

The "Branch" as it is now called, is the original line of the Monkland, used before the locks were made for the same purpose as at present. The incline is used for carrying boats up & down during the summer months, when the reservoirs fail in supplying sufficient water to bring them through the locks. It has a double line of rails, by which, the machines carrying the boats , run on. There is an engine at the top of the incline for drawing the machine up or down. There is a graving dock, & a workshop etc, connected with it, at the top level. The dock is used for building canal boats, & is connected with the Branch by a sluice gate. Several dwellings are also connected with the locks, they are occupied by men working the lock gates.
