Excerpt from The Glasgow Naturalist: The Journal of the Natural History Society of Glasgow It is always interesting to trace the course of a great river to its head-waters, till at length the stream we have followed is found to have its beginning in a tiny rivulet oozing from a moorland swamp, or dripping from a wet rock, or gushing forth from a cool, mossy spring. It was partly to indulge this interest that I determined to pay a visit to one of the head-waters of the River Clyde; but I also desired to learn something regarding the botanical features of a comparatively remote region of the Clyde area, from which, particularly in the departments of research in which I am specially interested, almost nothing had been placed upon record. After considering the comparative merits of the various head-waters of the Clyde, my choice fell upon the Potrail, as apparently the most accessible for me, as it could be reached by an easy walk of not more than four miles from Carron Bridge Station, on the main line of the Glasgow and South-Western Railway. Accordingly, on the morning of Saturday, 30th May last, I proceeded to carry my intention into effect. Between Old Cumnock and New Cumnock Stations the line passes from the drainage area of the Clyde to that of the Solway. At this point there is little to indicate the crossing of so important a water-shed, as the ground is somewhat flat and swampy, with several little lochs lying in proximity to the railway. A short distance beyond New Cumnock the valley of the Nith is entered upon. For some miles further the landscape is rather bleak and bare, but as the old burgh-town of Sanquhar is approached a welcome change rapidly takes place in the character of the scenery.
