Kirriemuir is hamlet in east-central Alberta, Canada within Special Area No. 4.[1][2] It is located on Highway 12, approximately 12 kilometers (7.5 mi) west of Altario. It has an elevation of 730 meters (2,400 ft).

Kirriemuir has a hall, a small general store with a post office and gas station, a playground, and two ball diamonds. The hamlet draws children from the greater area to participate on its softball teams during the summer months. One of the more popular events each year is the annual discing bonspiel, which is held at the Kirriemuir Hall. An older Alberta Wheat Pool grain elevator remains standing at the edge of town and it is still in use, but by private owners as the railroad tracks have long since been removed.
