A skimmer in the River Leven
A skimmer in the River Leven
The stone structure shown at the centre of the photograph is more visible than usual after a period of dry weather, which had lowered the Leven's level. It is a "skimmer", directing some of the flow of the river into a lade. In this case, the lade served Dalmonach Print Works (for which, see NS3980 : Levenbank).

For other examples on the River Leven, see NS3978 : The River Leven: a skimmer and NS3981 : Lade intake near Rosshead.
River Leven (Dunbartonshire)
The River Leven (Uisge Leamhna in Gaelic) is a stretch of water in West Dunbartonshire, Scotland, flowing from Loch Lomond in the North to the River Clyde in the South. The total length of the river is approximately 6 miles.
