LUNANHEAD, a village, in the parish and county of Forfar, 1¼ mile (E. N. E.) from Forfar; containing 191 inhabitants. It is situated in the northern part of the parish, and near the chief source of the river Lunan, whence the name. The loch of Restenneth, in the neighbourhood of the village, was drained about the commencement of the present century; but the powerful springs conducted by the drain through the moss, still form the principal head of the Lunan. This stream flows with a clear current eastward for about twelve or fourteen miles, and falls into the sea at Redcastle, giving name to a fine bay, which comprehends an extent of coast of five miles.
