Kirkton Burn

A stream in East Renfrewshire which rises to the south of Neilston Pad and flows northeast through Snypes Dam and on to Nether Kirkton, to the east of Neilston. It continues northeast to the southwestern edge of Barrhead, where it runs mostly in culverts eventually to fall into the Levern Water in the vicinity of Water Road, to the north of the town centre. Various small reservoirs once existed on its lower reaches to ensure a constant supply of water for industry, which included cotton and paper mills, and bleachfields.
