Kinnettles (Continued) [continued from page 1]
of Glamis & Forfar; on the East by the parishes of Forfar & Inverarity, & on the South by the parish of Inverarity, is pretty equally divided from east to west by an oblong hill, & situated partly in the vale of Strathmore, & partly in the valley formed among the Siedlaw hillls. In consequence of this oblong hill rising nearly in the centre of the parish, the surface of the ground is generally far from being flat, & owing to its vicinity to the German Ocean, has an atmosphere of considerable humidity. At the period of the Reformation, & for 200 years after, its extent was much less than it is at present; then, the Bishop of Dunkeld was proprietor of about 200 Scotch Acres of land, which though locally situated in the parish of Caputh lay conterminous with the southern extremity of the parish, which was sold in 1758 to the Earl of Strathmore & in 1773 the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland annexed them quoad sacra, to the parish of Kinnettles. The nearest market towns are Glamis & Forfar the latter 3 miles distant. There are two Villages in the parish Douglastown & Kirktown"
