It retains about three acres of the ancient common lands; and the inhabitants of both villages have the right of common-age, and the privilege of cutting turf, which, however, is confined to the surface, which they have the power to cut as long as heath and rushes grow upon it. The inhabitants are chiefly employed in the works at Garnkirk.
