Spardie Linn :: Shared Description

Spardie Linn is a waterfall on the Overtoun Burn; in total, the falls are about 8 metres (30 feet) in height. They are mentioned by name, as "Spardie Lynn", in a 1609 charter by James VI. At the top of the falls, the Overtoun Burn flows over ledges of hard sandstone; the falls have developed as the burn has gradually cut through the softer material underneath (Ballagan Beds, consisting of layers of shale alternating with layers of cementstone). Just below the falls was a turbine house, part of a hydro-electric scheme LinkExternal link to supply electricity to nearby Overtoun House (see LinkExternal link for the house).
