JM Barrie’s Birthplace
In nearby Kirriemuir, the house where J M Barrie, the creator of Peter Pan, was born has been preserved as a wonderful museum. The upper floors are furnished as they may have been when Barrie lived there. The adjacent house, No 11, contains an exhibition – The Genius of J M Barrie – about Barrie’s literary and theatrical works. The outside wash-house is said to have been his first theatre.

The Tallest Hedge
Don't miss this incredible living wall of beech trees!
The Meikleour Beech Hedge, near Blairgowrie, is the longest hedge in Britain and listed as the highest of its kind in the world. Planted in 1745, the hedge is 530 metres (one third of a mile) long and 30 metres (100ft) high.
