HISTORY OF ARTHURSTONE The name Arthurstone House is reputed to have come from a stone dedicated by the legendary King Arthur to his wife Guinevere. The earliest parts of the present house date from around 1789 when Captain James Ramsey rebuilt it upon older remains. In 1838, the owner Patrick Murray of Simprim commissioned William Burn to add the Victorian wing facing south-east and north-west, although much of this was subsequently dismantled by his son-in-law Admiral Brunswick Popham. By 1869 the house was owned by Peter Carmichael, head of the renowned spinners and manufacturers (Baxter Brothers of Dundee). He added the library and billiard room and the property remained in his family until 1990. The house was then used as a preparatory school until its closure in 2003. The present development comprises 15 properties and retains the character and charm from the Carmichael house.
