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, 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.

Admission is free with a small charge only for the exhibition area.
