Auchenbowie  Stirlingshire

 

In 1882-4, Frances Groome's Ordnance Gazetteer of Scotland described Auchenbowie like this:

Auchenbowie, a hamlet, an estate, and a burn in Stirlingshire. The hamlet and the estate are in St Ninians parish, 1¾ mile SSW of Bannockburn; and the mansion on the estate stands in the southern vicinity of the hamlet. Productive collieries are on the estate, and may be regarded as in the same coalfield with the collieries of Greenyards, Plean, and Bannockburn. The burn rises on the skirts of Drummarnock Hill, flows 3 miles eastward thence to the vicinity of the hamlet, turns there to the S, and proceeds 3 miles southward to the Carron in the vicinity of Denny.
