Cambus, Clackmannanshire

Historical Description

CAMBUS, a village, in the parish of ALLOA, county of CLACKMANNAN, 2 miles (W.) from Alloa, containing 287 inhabitants. This village, which is pleasantly situated on the west bank of the river Devon, is inhabited chiefly by persons who are employed in an extensive distillery. A small fishery for salmon, in the Devon, is carried on with considerable success; it is the property of Lord Abercromby, under whom it is held on lease, at £20 per annum. Michael Stirling, who lived in the village, invented the threshing-mill, upon which many improvements have been subsequently made.
