Found another. Renmuir. Kinnell parish. 1903, David Thomas was farming at Renmuir. 1896, David Scott, Renmuir.

It's the same one. Just the spelling differences again.

Can see an 1833 reference to "... Renmuir, an estate in the adjoining Parish of Kinnell, and Langton, in the Merse"

Also an 1809 reference to "Renmuir Farm" part of the estate of East Breakie, parish of Kinnell, within 6 miles of Montrose, Arbroath and Brechin"

Thanks all - brilliant work! :D

It's the place south of Farnell, now known as Pamphray Farm.
