Scottish Towns
Kirriemuir photograph to follow ne of Scotland's most pleasing small burghs, with its picturesque narrow streets and pretty red brick houses, offering the visitor a town which has retained a great deal of its character and charm. The town is rightly proud of its most famous son, the author J.M. Barrie (who named Kirriemuir Thrums in his writings).


he town retains much of its physical associations with J.M. Barrie largely due to the efforts of a Mr D. Alves. After Barrie was buried in the cemetary at Kirriemuir there were efforts to remove his house brick by brick and reconstruct it in America. Mr Alves bought the author's house and presented it with funds to the National Trust for restoration.


few miles west of Kirriemuir is Airlie Castle with its well laid out gardens. It was burned in 1641 and lay neglected for over a century before being rebuilt in the 1790's. After the burning the Airlie family moved to nearby Cortachy Castle.
Queen Mary was a frequent guest at Airlie when her close friend the Countess of Airlie lived here.


he accommodation available in Kirriemuir offers the visitor everything from a bed and breakfast establishment to a five star luxury hotel, all of which offer exceptional standards and quality service.
