Airthrey Paper Mill was in operation in 1795 under the ownership of James McRobie. There were two papermills at Airthrey, Bridge of Allan, Stirlingshire in 1825. Both belonged to James McRobie. In the 1832 list mills 2 & 3 appear both owned by McRobie, but 1 is not listed. In 1845 John McRobie transferred his papermaking machinery from Airthrey No.3 to Airthrey No.2. In the 1852 list only one of the three survives (No.2), and has passed to H. Henderson & Co. Spelt Aithry Glas Dir 1809.
