Carmyllie

(Milton of Carmyllie)
Angus

A village in an Angus parish of the same name, Carmyllie, more fully the Milton of Carmyllie, lies on the B 971 road, 5 miles (8 km) west of Arbroath. Paving and building stone from the nearby quarries was exported worldwide and because it was shipped from Arbroath came to be known as "Arbroath stone". The reaping machine was invented in Carmyllie in 1826 by the parish minister, the Rev. Patrick Bell.
