In 1882-4, Frances Groome's Ordnance Gazetteer of Scotland described Campmuir like this:
Campmuir, a hamlet in Kettins parish, Forfarshire, 2 miles S of Cupar-Angus. Outlines of a Roman camp, with only one gate, towards the larger camp at Cupar, are in its vicinity; and here, according to Skene, the ninth legion was surprised in 83 a. d. by the Caledonians, who, however, were routed, Agricola falling on their rear.
A Vision of Britain through Time includes a large library of local statistics for administrative units. For the best overall sense of how the area containing Campmuir has changed, please see our redistricted information for the modern district of Perth and Kinross. More detailed statistical data are available under Units and statistics, which includes both administrative units covering Campmuir and units named after it.
