This area is bounded on the east and west by the River Leven and the main road, and on the north and south by NS3879 : Place of Bonhill and Cordale Avenue (NS3879 : Cordale Avenue, Renton).

The burn formed from the union of the Poachy Burn (on which, see NS3779 : Ruins of Carman Cottage) and NS3879 : The Mill Burn flows through this area, and is crossed by the wooden footbridge that is visible in the background. That burn is also shown in NS3879 : Tributary stream of River Leven.

Two of the features that are visible in the present photograph are also shown separately: see NS3879 : Timber circle and NS3879 : Stone circle (the latter photograph also provides another view of the little bridge over the burn). Click on the end-note title for other related views.

NS3879 : Millburn Roads Depot is located on the other side of the main road.
Millburn Gardens

The Mill Burn flows through this landscaped area, which is bounded on one side by the main road, and on the other by the River Leven. Formerly lying waste, the space was laid out, c.1998, to include stands of pine and birch, willow coppice, alder carr, boardwalks, picnic tables, a wet meadow, a wild flower meadow, standing stones, a sensory garden, and, in the north-eastern corner, a story-telling area (St Martin's Primary school is nearby).

Facing it across the main road is a depot; the site of the depot was formerly occupied by the Millburn Works (pyroligneous works), and, at an even earlier period, by a grain mill that was associated with Millburn Farm.
