Made of lovely red sandstone, the Strathmore valley town of Kirriemuir is often regarded as the gateway to the Angus Glens, some of Scotland's most unspoiled landscapes. JM Barrie - creator of the much-loved children's character, Peter Pan, and subject of the Johnny Depp film 'Finding Neverland', was born in the town and his house is now a museum looked after by the National Trust for Scotland. A statue of 'the boy who never grew up' can be found within Kirriemuir. However, Barrie is not the only literary connection to this charming little town. Nearby Glamis castle was the setting for Shakespeare's 'cursed' play, Macbeth. The historic Pictish Stones at Meigle and the Angus Glens are well worth visiting and offer spectacular views whilst hill walking.
From the lush green farmlands of the Borders to the ruggedness of the Highlands, the Scots are proud of their land and identity. Scotland also has some of Britain's best beaches with glorious stretches of clean sand over which to roam.
