Not much to really say but if you're a massive AC/DC fan then this will be for you. When you're finished then the Peter Pan park is worth a visit if the weather is nice

We‘ve booked a stay in Kirriemuir and we’re surprised to see a bronze statue of Bon Scott here. Not knowing, that we’re visiting a historical place
