Population figures are difficult to compare, as no two sources extract data in the same way.
The change from a parish population of c239 in 1945 to c170 in 2000 has been mainly due to the radical reduction in farm labour. Most farm labourers’ cottages have been sold, joined together and modernised changing the pattern and type of inhabitants. Very few tied cottages remain whereas, in 1950, Eaglescairnie alone had 13.
