Craigton of Monikie, Scotland
The village and area of Craigton of Monikie in a lovely rural setting
about 11 miles north-east of Dundee, Scotland. It appears here in
an aerial photograph believed to have been taken in 1953 and viewed from above
the Panmure Testimonial looking north. Click here for maps of the
area and see if you can locate the various places mentioned. In the centre
of the photograph is Monikie Primary School and to the bottom left is the
building which was the manse of the former free church.
The large semi-circular shape protruding into the left of the picture is the
eastern side of the North Pond of what was then Monikie Public Reservoir,
originally constructed for the Corporation of Dundee, but
now is popular with fishermen and water-sports enthusiasts as part of Monikie
Country Park. Just
off-centre, the area at the angled crossroads is known as "The Point" and
to its right, Point Cottage. The large, irregularly shaped, fielded area
towards the bottom left has seen considerable change since this photograph was
taken - a few houses have now been built there and an egg production
unit took up a considerable part of this plot.
However, in June 1999 that plant was completely removed and a small
development of new houses was built.
