"The parish of Guthrie consists of 2 portions, one of which (Kirkbuddo) is separated from the other, where the church is, by an interval of seven miles. The northern portion, in which the church stands, is bounded on the south by Kirkden and Rescobie, on the west by Rescobie and Aberlemno, on the north by Aberlemno and on the east by Kinnell. The south (Kirkbuddo) portion is bounded on the north by Dunnichen, on the west by Inverarity, on the south by Inverarity and Monikie, and on the east by Carmylie. There are about 3200 acres of cultivated land in the parish, plus about 660 acres under wood and moor. The parish contains neither town nor village. The nearest post town is Forfar, but the chief communication takes place with Arbroath. There is an alehouse in the Kirktown and another on the east boundary of the parish. Coals are the chief fuel used, brought from Arbroath."
