034 An extensive tract of Moorland now planted with fir trees which was formerly a Common but now divided among the numerous Estates adjoining.
This Muir extends eastwards to Greenlaw in Farnell Parish; west to Turin in Aberlemno, North to Ardivie in Brechin; and south as far as Guthrie Ph. [Parish]. The above information is given on the authority of Mr Mather, retired Forrester of South-Esk Estate.
Montromon is the ordinary mode of spelling this name on South Esk Estate as stated by Mr. Lyall, Factor, but he recommends the adoption of Montreathmonth as given upon the original Plan of the Muir. Every Estate has its own spelling of the Name. (See adjoining Parishes of Guthrie and Kirkden)
