Barrie's BirthplaceKirriemuirHouse
Kirriemuir in Angus is a fantastic family day out. Where else can play as being Peter Pan, bump into a crocodile in the garden and gaze into a magic mirror on a hill all in one day? J.M. Barrie, the creator of Peter Pan, is one of Angus’ most famous sons. The author was born in Kirriemuir 150 years ago and thanks to the efforts of the National Trust for Scotland you can visit the cottage where Barrie grew up and enjoy a brand new exhibition celebrating his life and works. Stepping through the front door is like walking into Neverland. There are many fascinating items including costumes and manuscripts and some rooms look exactly like they would have done over a century ago when Barrie lived there.

An outstanding example of 16th-century Scottish architecture, which is both intact and hardly altered. The castle owes its striking appearance to asymmetrical square garrett chambers corbelled out over two circular towers at diagonally opposite corners. Built by John Strachan between 1569 and 1588, and later owned by ‘Bonnie Dundee’, John Graham of Claverhouse, it was inhabited into the 19th century.

Eassie Sculptured StoneEassieStone
An elaborately sculptured Pictish cross-slab with an intricate cross, angels, animals, warrior, Pictish symbols and three hooded figures.

Edzell Castle and GardenForfarCastle
Edzell Castle is enchanting. The red sandstone castle walls, set amid pleasing green parkland, conjure up an image of a noble bygone age. Medieval society was not all fighting and feuding. Everyday lordly life in late-medieval rural Scotland is more readily understood at Edzell than at most castles. Edzell was home to the Lindsays. When they acquired the estate in 1358, the lordly seat was a timber residence beside the ancient church. During the 16th century, they built a brand-new castle a short distance away – the one we admire today. The ‘icing on the cake’ of their new residence was the wonderful ‘great garden’, added in 1604.

H M Frigate UnicornDundeeHistoric Ship
H.M. Frigate Unicorn is the oldest British-built ship afloat and Scotlands' only example of a wooden warship from the golden age of sail.

House of DunMontroseHouse

The estate comprises Lady Augusta’s Walk, an adventure playground, a Victorian walled garden, terraced gardens, a woodland walk (great for dogs) and farmland.

Lindsay Burial AisleEdzellChurch Remains
This small burial Aisle is all that remains of the 14th-century Edzell Old Church. The Aisle was built by the Lindsays of Edzell as a chantry chapel in the 16th century and was later used as their burial vault.

Maison Dieu ChapelBrechinChapel
Part of the south wall of a chapel, belonging to a medieval hospital founded in the 1260s with finely-detailed doors and windows.

St Orland's StoneNr ForfarStone
A tall, Pictish cross-slab with a prominent, ornate cross. The stone is accessed via a stile approximately 2 miles down a farm track to the north of Glamis. The track is not signposted and is unsuitable for cars. There is no pedestrian access from the adjacent agricultural fields.

St Vigeans Sculptured StonesArbroathStones
It is hard to believe that this sleepy Angus village of St Vigeans was once the centre of a royal estate and of huge religious importance, bustling with prayerful pilgrims and monks. Admittedly, this was more than 1,000 years ago. The most important indications of the village’s powerful past can be found, however, in two adjoining sandstone cottages along its only street. Within their walls in Historic Scotland’s museum are housed 38 carved stones, which had once stood up on the old church mound to broadcast early messages of the true Christian faith. The newly refurbished museum gives overdue recognition to the significance of the carvings. ‘The stones are among the last and very finest expressions of Pictish art, which makes them tremendously important – part of our national collection of the earliest art of Scotland.

Tealing Dovecot And Earth HouseBalgrayDovecot
An elegant dovecot of the late 16th century standing in a modern farmyard. A short walk leads to the remains of an earth house, or souterrain, of Iron Age date, a curving underground passage, now uncovered. Re-used stones with Bronze Age rock carvings can be seen in its walls.
