Mill Dam Burn

A stream which descends through Port Glasgow in Inverclyde, the Mill Dam Burn rises in Harelaw Reservoir (the original Mill Dam) and flows east for a quarter-mile (0.5 km) across the Devol Moor before turning northeast and passing through another reservoir at East Dougliehill (now drained) before falling steeply to the north between Whitecroft and Devol and on through Port Glasgow where it once powered textile mills and finally into the Firth of Clyde. It extends for 1½ miles (2.4 km). The middle reaches include a waterfall but the final quarter-mile (0.5 km) is hidden in culverts.
