I think that this is the Janet that the tree on Ancestry refers to. You would need to get the birth certificate to check that her mother's maiden surname matches that given by Janet on her marriage to Robert.

Although Janet's birth is not coming up on Familysearch.org I think some of her siblings are. I suspect this is her mother in 1841 BUT her birth certificate from SCOTLANDSPEOPLE will confirm her mother's maiden surname and if her parents married after 1855 their marriage certificate will confirm their parents names.

Marriage (per SP):

1885 MCMORRAN DAVID
ROBERTSON ELIZABETH LADHOPE /ROXBURGH 776/0B 0024

But she was still calling herself Robertson on 1891 census.
In Scotland a married woman could/can legally use either surname after marriage.

Re Clackmannanshire:
"An adjustment was made by the Boundary Commission in 1891. Previously the county contained four parishes: Alloa, Clackmannan, Dollar and Tillicoultry and portions of Logie and Stirling. The Clackmannanshire portion of Stirling parish was transferred to Stirlingshire. The Clackmannan portion of Logie parish was divided into three parts. One was transferred to the Stirlingshire parish of Logie; a second was united with the parish of Alva, which was wholly given to Clackmannanshire; while the third part was absorbed by the parish of Alloa."
