DEVONSIDE, a village, in the parish of Tillicoultry, county of Clackmannan, ¾ of a mile (S.) from Tillicoultry; containing 170 inhabitants. This village, situated on the banks of the Devon, has sprung up within these few years: coal, which is abundant in the parish, is wrought in its vicinity, and brick and tile works have been erected. The place is suitably circumstanced for manufactures, the Devon supplying water for steam-engines and other purposes.
