"ALLOA, a parish, containing a town of the same name, also the villages of Cambus, Collyland, Tullibody, and Holton Square, and comprising the two ancient parishes of Alloa and Tullibody, in Clackmannanshire. It is bounded on the north and west by the river Devon; on the south by the river Forth; and on the east by the parishes of Tillicoultry and Clackmannan. Its average length from east to west is about 4 miles; but its extent of bank along the winding Forth, here slowly beginning to expand into firth, is about 5½ miles; and its breadth from north to south is about 2 miles."
From the Imperial Gazetteer of Scotland, edited by John Marius Wilson, 1868.
