JM Barrie's Birthplace

Historic Buildings & Homes

9 Brechin Road, Kirriemuir, Angus, DD8 4BX

    Visit the birthplace of author and playwright JM Barrie, the creator of the much loved Peter Pan.

    In this two-storeyed house JM Barrie (1860 - 1937), the creator of Peter Pan, was born.

    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 JM Barrie which presents Barrie’s literary and theatrical works. The outside wash-house is said to have been his first theatre.

    Children will love The Peter Pan Experience where they can dress up as Peter Pan, Tinkerbell and some of J M Barrie’s other well loved characters.

    The garden has been redeveloped to include a living willow crocodile and Peter Pan statue, and some of J. M. Barrie’s books as well as confectionary and souvenirs are available to purchase from the shop.
