Notes

The burn flows northwards from St Margaret's Craig DFL till it meets the Pow Burn (the confluence is at the NGR given). It once formed the boundary between SLN and the part of DFL which lay in Kinross-shire (KNR). Since 1891, however, it has formed the boundary between SLN and Cleish KNR (Taylor with Márkus i, 360).
