Luggie Water, a rivulet of Lanarkshire and the detached district of Dumbartonshire, flowing 10 7/8 miles westward and west-north-westward along the boundaries or through the interior of Cumbernauld, New Monkland, Cadder, and Kirkintilloch parishes, till it falls into Kehin Water at Kirkintilloch town. Except for a brief distance in Kirkintilloch parish, where it possesses some features of beauty, it is a dull, sluggish, ditch-like stream. A local poet, however, has deemed it at once cheerful. and romantic, and has sung its supposed beauties in the pretty lyric of Luggie-Side.Ord. Sur., sh. 31, 1867.
