Sluice gate beside the Overtoun Burn
In the foreground, the Overtoun Burn follows a straight artificial channel: NS4276 : The channel of the Overtoun Burn. The sluice gate visible on its other side controlled the flow of water to a lily pond, which also served as the source of water for a domestic hydro-electric power scheme. See the link given above for the context, and for further details. Note that the pebbly area beside the sluice gate can be seen in both photographs.
