  • Definitely worth a visit to one of the last remaining Camera Obscure in Scotland. Gifted to the town by J.M. Barrie, it is now operated by community volunteers and sells hot and cold drinks. So much to do close by that this makes a welcome addition to a days activities in and around Kirriemuir.
  • Small but interesting attraction and, as one of the few camera Obscuras in the country, well worth a visit. The staff are friendly and very knowledgeable about the history of the building.
  • A unique in the area landmark and visitor experience gifted to the town by JM Barrie, author of peter pan
  • We were visiting Kirriemuir to pay homage to the Bon Scott statue and found this place by accident: it's towards the back of town up the hill. Run by volunteers, a husband and wife team were on duty when we visited, its been restored to a high standard. Groups of visitors (up to 6 at a time?) are taken in to view the Camera Obscura with the staff showing how it works etc. Having never visited a Camera Obscura before I found it interesting. In fact it even kept the kids amused: no doubt helped by the cheery delivery and explanations from the staff. It doesn't take long to see all there is to see, maybe 15 mins, but its well worth a visit if you're in Kirriemuir.
  • Unique local attraction, run by an amazing team of volunteers. Must visit if you're in Kirriemuir.
