Claverhouse is an area of Dundee, Scotland. John Graham of Claverhouse (1648–1689), known to history as "Bonnie Dundee" or "Bluidy Clavers" by his supporters and detractors respectively, was the laird of Claverhouse, although he was born at Glen Ogilvie, near Glamis.
The Claverhouse Bleachworks factory opened in the late 1770s and closed in the 1970s. Claverhouse Bleachfield had a chimney and a counting house which housed a bell and a clock tower. The bell has been removed although the clock tower and the chimney of the bleachwork factory still stand in Claverhouse.
Private residential estates Claverhouse Braes and Dalclaverhouse were constructed in Claverhouse in the late 1990s.
