Bannatyne House in Newtyle was bought by Alexander H Moncur, ex-Lord Provost of Dundee, in 1887. He enlarged the building to make it into Bannatyne Home of Rest, a holiday home for women who worked in the Dundee jute mills. The Home was officially gifted and endowed in 1892, and provided accommodation for up to 50 people. By 1961, the Home was in financial difficulties and was forced to close. The house was sold to Colonel James Bannatyne in 1962.
