Douglastown  Angus


In 1882-4, Frances Groome's Ordnance Gazetteer of Scotland described Douglastown like this:

Douglastown, a village in Kinnettles parish, Forfarshire, on the right bank of Arity Water, at the western verge of the parish, 3½ miles SW of Forfar, under which it has a post office. At it stand the handsome new parish school and a large flax-spinning mill, founded, like the village, in 1792.
