Things to see and so in Kirriemuir

Kirriemuir known as the ‘Gateway to the Glens’s is a charming town and is an ideal base for exploring the beautiful area of Angus.

Located just 5 miles north of Forfar, Kirriemuir is also famous as being the birthplace of the author JM Barrie, the creator of Peter Pan. In homage to JM Barrie there is a statue of Peter Pan in the middle of the town and his birthplace has been transformed to contain an imaginative exhibition featuring life-size figures, theatre posters and stage costumes.

Another famous figure who's childhood home was Kirriemuir is rock legend, Bon Scott, the lead singer of AC/DC. You can now take a selfie beside the statue of the rock star at Bellies Brae and there is also a festival held each year called Bonfest to celebrate Kirriemuir’s famous son.
