Inchbelly  Stirlingshire


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

Inchbelly, a hamlet on the mutual border of Stirlingshire and Dumbartonshire, on the river Kelvin, adjacent to the Forth and Clyde Canal, 1¼ mile ENE of Kirkintilloch. It has a bridge over the Kelvin, on the road from Glasgow to Falkirk, and, together with Inchbreck, Inchterf, Inchwood, and Netherinch in its neighbourhood, it owes the ' inch ' of its name to quondam insulation by the waters which once occupied the strath now traversed by the Forth and Clyde Canal.—Ord. Sur, sh. 31, 1867.
