Usage examples of "skyre".

Beyond the Rinks Hope I would cross the ridge to the top of the Skyre burn, which at its head is all split up into deep grassy gullies.

Not seeing me on the upper Skyre, he would think that I had bustled a bit and would look for me lower down the glen.

That must have confused me, and the way I had been making circles round the sheep, for I struck the wrong feeder, and instead of following the one that led to the top of the Skyre burn I kept too much to my left.

When I got to the bottom I found that the burn was the merest trickle, not the strong stream of the Skyre, which is a famous water for trout.
