Caithness home of JM Barrie friend for sale
A Free Church of Scotland manse with a link to Peter Pan creator JM Barrie has been put up for sale.
The Rev James Winter, had lived at the manse in Bower, Caithness, and was engaged to Barrie's sister Margaret.
Just six months after he had been ordained, and three weeks before the wedding, the minister was killed after being thrown from his horse.
A letter by Barrie was read at the funeral. In the author spoke of the couple's "love story".
The manse, which is now a bed and breakfast, has been put on the market for offers of more than £185,000.
The bride-to-be had not been well enough to attend her fiance's funeral.
Barrie stayed with his sister in Kirriemuir in Angus, but sent a letter dated 11 May 1892 to the congregation of Bower
He wrote that his sister, though she had not been to Bower, counted those among the congregation as being among her loved ones as they had called "her Jim" to the community.
Barrie described the minister as his "dearest friend", adding that the couple's love story of four years and a half "began the hour they first met".
