A small stream or ditch – the uppermost section of a water course draining from the moor. Nothing feeds into a sike, there’s never a bridge and you can always leap across one.
Frequently flows into a Burn, which then might pass through a Cleugh. [R.S.]
Very small stream like one trickling from a pool or marsh. Not a stream as such more like a large gutter. [K.E.]
Possibly Iceland [K.E.]
