Scotland's latest international visitor attraction, [...].

Scotland's latest international visitor attraction, the new National Centre for Children's Literature and Storytelling in Dumfries, is now open.

Neglected for many years, Moat Brae house and garden was where the young J.M. Barrie played the games that inspired Peter Pan.

With PS8million of fairy dust spent to bring it back to life, the Georgian property will inspire young imaginations with the likes of the original Tinker Bell, a dolls' house 6ft tall, and resident and visiting writers.

Outside will be the Neverland Discovery Garden, including a pirate ship and a mermaid's lagoon.

The public fundraising campaign was spearheaded by Joanna Lumley, patron of the Peter Pan Moat Brae Trust, who said: "The moment you step into Moat Brae you understand why J.M. Barrie called it enchanted land." peterpanmoatbrae.org
