Stank Burn


(The Stank)

A stream mostly hidden within culverts, the Stank Burn (or The Stank) rises as a drainage ditch in the South Gyle area of W Edinburgh. It flows east for 3 miles (5 km) through Corstorphine, Carrick Knowe and Saughtonhall, to fall into the Water of Leith at Murrayfield, between the road and foot-bridges which cross the river from Riversdale Crescent.
