An Autumn Day Out in Kirriemuir
Location 1: Say hello to Peter Pan and Bon Scott
Kirriemuir is famously known as the birthplace of J M Barrie, author of children’s favourite Peter Pan. A statue of Peter Pan stands in Kirriemuir town centre to commemorate Barrie – make sure you pay it a visit.
Another claim to fame for Kirriemuir is Bon Scott, lead singer of rock band AC/DC, who was raised in Kirriemuir during his early years. A statue of Bon was unveiled in 2016 and stands proudly in Bellies Brae car park – come and take a selfie with this rock and roll legend.
Location 2: Neverland Play Park
Don’t miss a visit to the delightful Peter Pan themed Neverland play park. Lots of fun for little ones (and big kids too)! There are climbing frames, a wooden pirate ship and a zip wire too.
There’s also some woodland here if you fancy a walk before lunch.
Kirriemuir has a great selection of places to eat, including cosy cafes serving homemade treats and restaurants serving delicious meals using locally sourced produce.
Check the website to see what’s on offer.
