KirriemuirKirriemur is a red sandstone town in the valley of Strathmore, Angus. Kirriemur is situated on the Gairie Burn 5 miles west of Forfar. Kirriemuir's claim to fame is as the birthplace of JM Barrie (1860-1937), creator of Peter Pan, the little boy who never grew up. Barrie's birthplace can be visited at 9 Brechin Road. The humble little weaver's cottage is now managed by the NTS, and the upper floor is furnished as it would have been when he lived there.
