Murie Park was sold in December 1872 to John Broun Broun-Morison Esq of Finderlie and West Errol, for the sum of ?78,500. Murie House was demolished some years ago and the nearby limestone quarry ceased production before the end of the 19th century. The Celtic Cross on Law Knoll (listed separately) and walled garden are all that remains. Property now part of Errol Park Estate.
