The Forth at this place is Very Shallow in Summer it can nearly be crossed dry and till the present bridge was errected was the only place where horses and carts &c crossed for miles either up or down the River. the Banks on each side are low and sloping to the water edge with a hard footing through the River the bed is composed of Sand and Shingle no Rocks.
Mr. Campbell of Boquhan states that he never heard of a fortification to protect it on either Sides but that he heard that some of his predecessors had some few pieces of Cannon placed on the Gargunnock side to defend it, but nothing of a fortification.
