Maldoven, earl of Lennox, has granted, and by this his charter has established, to Paisley Abbey and its monks, in free, pure and perpetual alms, the donation which Robert Hertford the clerk made to them, when he was at the point of death, of half the fishery called ‘Lynbren’ (DNB), with that whole land of ‘Dallenlenrath’ (now Dalmonach, DNB) which lies between the said fishery and the main road to Dumbarton, as he [the earl] gave and assigned to them in exchange for that acre of land which he [the earl] gave Robert Hertford with half of the said fishery. He therefore wills and grants that the said monks shall hold the land and fishery whole and entire in perpetual alms, with pasture for 8 oxen and two horses in his land of ‘Buchlul’, and with freedom to take stone and timber for building, and fuel for burning, from his land. Moreover, he has given them authority to fish thoughout the whole of his loch of Leven [i.e. Loch Lomond] without any impediment, with the liberty for their fishermen to dry their nets, and make dwellings and huts, both on the islands of the loch and in his surrounding lands.
