The White House, Todhills
This was an inn situated opposite the end of Whitehouse Farm Road. It consisted of Ale and Porterhouse and livery stables where the horses were rested or changed on the journey between Dundee and Forfar. It made an imposing landmark, since it was a large two-storey building and was always freshly white washed. It was also sometimes referred to as the "Half-way House". Jim MacFarlane recalls" my family lived in the house for nearly a year during 1939 until No 8 Holding, Todhills was completed. As a child I remember the traffic passing only a few feet from our window. At that time it was mainly buses and David Callendar of Forfar lorries, which were regularly carrying material to construct the runways at Tealing Aerodrome. The house and out buildings were demolished by Dundee Contracting Company in early 1940 and the material was used to make the entry roads to Holdings 1-7 on the Forfar Road".
