Kirriemuir Scotland

Kirriemuir is a red sandstone town in the valley of Strathmore, Angus, situated on the Gairie Burn five miles north-west of Forfar. Described as the Gateway to the Glens, its settlement dates back at least to medieval times. Once a centre of handloom weaving and later jute processing, it now lies at the heart of rich farming land. James Matthew Barrie whose birthplace you can visit, was born on May 9, 1860, in Kirriemuir. Barrie's best-known play, Peter Pan, was first presented in 1904, and in the town centre of Kirriemuir there is a Peter Pan statue. Kirriemuir, and area, has much to offer on any Tour of Scotland.
