Auchterhouse is a village, community, and civil parish in the Scottish council area of Angus, located 7.3mi north west of Dundee, 9.5mi south east of Alyth and 14.9mi south west of Forfar. It lies on the southern edge of the Sidlaw Hills, below Auchterhouse Hill, 1,398ft high. The parish, which is coterminous with the community, had a population of 520 in 2001. The village, formerly known as Milltown of Auchterhouse, straddles the B954 Muirhead to Newtyle road. About 1.0mi east lies the larger village of Kirkton of Auchterhouse, where the church and school are located.Singer Billy MacKenzie lived in the village from 1991 until his death in 1997. Kirkton of Auchterhouse, was the subject of the painting 'Sidlaw Village, Winter' by James MacIntosh Patrick.HistoryThe earliest human settlement discovered around Auchterhouse dates from 3500 to 1000 BC, in the form of stone and bronze tools used by the first farmers to clear woodland. Wheat and barley were grown, and cattle and sheep kept, while a decorated sandstone spindle whorl found at Bonnyton, north of the village, and now kept at the McManus Galleries in Dundee, indicates that wool was spun into thread. A possible henge in Dronley Wood has been revealed by aerial photography, and a stone circle at Templelands was destroyed during railway construction in the 19th century.
