Kirriemuir’s Camera Obscura will open for the summer season this weekend.

The Camera Obscura on the Hill, which is managed by the National Trust for Scotland on behalf of Angus Council, will open to the public once more on Saturday, April 23.

The structure is one of only three of its type remaining in Scotland, and offers stunning views of Kirriemuir and its surrounding glens.

Donated by the author of Peter Pan, J. M. Barrie, to the town of Kirriemuir, the camera provides stunning views of the Glens and surrounding countryside.

Property Manager John McKenna said: “The camera obscura is a fascinating building and a wonderful site for folk to visit to enjoy the views and learn more about this fascinating technology.

“And of course, as it was donated by J. M. Barrie himself, it makes good sense to stop in and see his birthplace while you are in the area.”

 The camera obscura is open between 12 noon and 5 pm on Saturdays and Sundays from April 23 to June 26, then from 12 noon to 5 pm Mondays to Saturdays and 1 pm to 5 pm on Sundays from July 2 to September 30. Last viewing is at 4.40 pm.
