Rothiemoon Farm

Owners/occupiers

Information from Alexander Meldrum  May 2020:  My 6 times great Grandfather Alexander Meldrum goes back to having farmed at Rothiemoon Farm in 1760 and may go back further than that.  Some of my Ancestors are Buried in Abernethy Old Kirk, where you can find a Head Stone relating to the Farm.

Rothiemoon was farmed up to 1942 by the late James Grant – d. 1967

From 1942 to 1964 Rothiemoon was farmed by George Stokes and then his son of the same name.

A D McLaren (known locally as Mac) twice rented the farmhouse during that period when he was home on leave from South America.

In 1964 he took over the tenancy of the farm , which was initially run by his son Alasdair, until his father came home to live there. The dairy herd was sold in 198O/81 at which point Alasdair and his family left the farm and John Kirk came to manage the farm for  Mac and his wife Sheila until Mac’s death in 1990. The tenancy subsequently  passed to John Kirk but Sheila continued to live in the farmhouse until her death in 2006.

From 1980 it has been farmed by John Kirk and his wife Anne who also farmed at Mains of Curr as the two units were put together
