Cloan Road and Haldane Street, both in Downfield, were laid out by Robert Haldane, related to the Haldanes of Gleneagles, who was proprietor about 1822, of part of the estate of Kirkton, lying south of Strathmartine estate.

The ground is largely feued since Mr Haldane’s time. Cloan is the name of the seat of the present Viscount Haldance, near Auchterarder.
