Did you know . . . that the Carron, a river in the Scottish Highlands only about 23 km long, has given its name to a type of naval cannon, a line of bathtubs, two warships and an island in the Southern Hemisphere?

That's a great achievement for a river.

Did you know...
that the word "catamaran" stems from the Tamil word "Kattu-maram", which literally means 'logs of wood tied together'?
