To get to the castle, Mr Monkey had to scamper across a small river which had escaped and was allowed to flow over a road. This is the Burn of Care, on the west side of the glen. There's another stream, the Burn of Sorrow, on the east, and they meet below the castle. When Sorrow and Care meet, they turn into the Dollar Burn, which Mr Monkey thinks is a bit of a disappointing name.
