Full Description

Originally the Spinningdale Burn flowed from Loch Migdale, then went into a bog, and then emerged as a burn again near Balnaling (see MHG19307). This is clearly visible in the 1st edition OS map. By the time of the 2nd edition (1904), there is a distinct water course (Spinningdale Burn) for the whole route. G MacLeod of Tain remembers digging a ditch in the bog about 20 years ago, and coming across a timber-lined lade (info to S Kruse). E Garty has seen the remnants of the lade in the bog. It was constructed with big square nails (E and B Milne). <1>
