A scary tale from Kirrie

Writer John Meachen is putting together a book of short stories which will include a scary tale with an Angus connection.

Titled ‘Appointment in Kirriemuir’ it tells of a girl who lives far away from the town, but whose life seems to be directed towards the Angus burgh. It is inspired by John’s work colleague, Wendy, with a bizarre series of events that linked her to Kirriemuir.

The story’s Wendy is drawn to the town - but is she heading for her death?

John told us some of the story is based on fact: a bike involved was indeed purchased in Kirriemuir, and a memorial bench and plaque are real.

No publication date is set, but our reporter is looking forward to reading the other spooky tales!
