This report provides new radiocarbon (C 14) dated sediment stratigraphic data from a third aggrading low energy fluvial system in Scotland, in the upper reaches of the Kelvin Valley in central Scotland to clarify the chronology and dynamism of fluvial and valley forming events and to explore cause in sediment generation. It suggests that aggradation is an early-mid-Holocene phenomenon in these paraglacial valleys, and observes that in the Kelvin Valley, as in the Milfield basin, sedimentation ceased before the last several thousand years
