A visit in January 2006 confirmed that two large yews still stand either side of the old gate south of Grange House. They can be seen in the strip of trees along the north side of Airlie Drive, directly opposite the junction with Grangehill Drive. The size of these yews suggests that they were planted long after the events of 1650, or at most, were saplings at that time. Angus Council have confirmed that all the trees in this strip (which includes some other fine specimen trees) are protected by a TPO, although the yews are not specifically mentioned.
2009 – Norman Atkinson for the Ancient Tree Hunt: Yew with girth of 400cm is one of two flanking the entrance to the old Grange Estate, now on grass by Grange Road.
