Kirriemuir

"Kirriemuir, commonly pronounced Killamuir; a considerable town and parish in Angus. The town is situated near the foot of the braes of Angus, on the south west side of a hill near a romantic den, through which flows the small river Gairie. It consists of several streets, going off from each other, in a manner somewhat resembling the arms and shaft of an anchor. Few towns in the county have a better supplied weekly market; and in no town of its size is more trade carried on. In 1792, the amount of osnaburgs and coarse linens manufactured in the town and neighbourhood, was about 30,000 l. sterling. It lies 16 miles from Dundee, 20 from Arbroath and 6 from Forfar. It is a burgh of barony, governed by a baron bailie, appointed by Lord Douglas, the superior, and is of considerable antiquity; but the date of its charter of erection is unknown."
