Luthermuir  Kincardineshire


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

Luthermuir, a village, with a public school, in Marykirk parish, Kincardineshire, near the right bank of Luther Water, 3 5/8 miles S by E of Fettercairn and 5 SW of Laurencekirk, under which it has a post office. Founded towards the close of last century on a moor so barren as to be reckoned worthless, it figured, for a time, as little else than a resort of destitute and abandoned persons from many surrounding parishes, but forty years ago was mainly occupied by handloom weavers. ...

Pop. (1841) 967, (1861) 868, (1871) 654, (1881) 383.—Ord. Sur., sh. 57, 1868.
