The River Leven: a skimmer
For the main description, and for a different view of this structure, which is only exposed when the water level is low, see NS3978 : The River Leven: Dillichip Lade and a skimmer. It directs water into a lade ("Ritchie's Lade" see NS3879 : Memorial to Robert Ritchie) which served the Cordale print works. For the corresponding outlets, see NS3978 : Lade outflows at Cordale Point.

The footpath on the right is also part of a cycle route (NCN7).
