CRAIGO, a village, in the parish of Logie-Pert, county of Forfar, 5½ miles (N. N. W.) from Montrose; containing 359 inhabitants. It is pleasantly seated on the south bank of the North Esk river, and in its vicinity are extensive bleachfields, and several mills for flax spinning, cloth-finishing machinery, and an alkali manufacture. These works together employ about 150 hands. Craigo House, built by the Carnegie family, about fifty years since, is a mile south of the village, and the grounds around are well planted: on the estate is a good freestone quarry. The North Esk is crossed in the neighbourhood of the place by substantial bridges, of which one, of three arches, was erected by the celebrated John Erskine, of Dun, at the time of the Reformation.
