The Official Website for Lewis Grassic Gibbon
Welcome to the Grassic Gibbon Centre!
Exhibition and Cafe Open 10 – 4:30
The Grassic Gibbon Centre celebrates the life, work and times of James Leslie Mitchell, the novelist of the Mearns, better known by his pen name Lewis Grassic Gibbon.
Sunset Song, his best loved novel, is set in the Mearns around the Centre and was a success right from its first publication in 1932. Today, after adaptations for TV, radio, film, theatre and music, it remains one of the most popular of all Scottish stories.
The Centre is a purpose-built, bright, attractive building adjoining Arbuthnott Hall and is run by a voluntary board of directors on behalf of the local community on an entirely not-for-profit basis.It sits in the very heart of the beautiful Mearns countryside, the spiritual home of Lewis Grassic Gibbon.
Admission is free with a small charge for the exhibition area
