The Camera Obscura, one of only three working Camera Obscuras in Scotland, is located within the Cricket Pavilion which stands on Kirrie Hill and which was gifted to the town of Kirriemuir by Sir JM Barrie in 1930.

Providing views over Strathmore to the south and through 360 degrees to  the Cairngorms and Angus Glens to the north, it is managed and staffed by the volunteer members of Kirriemuir Regeneration Group who have a wealth of knowledge about the local area.
