Lewis Grassic Gibbon


Lewis Grassic Gibbon was born in Aberdeenshire but moved to the Howe of the Mearns where he spent his formative years within the sights and sounds of this unique part of the countryside.

His upbringing was to be a profound influence on his writings in later life and were epitomised in “Sunset Song”, the first part of his trilogy about life in the Mearns in the early part of the twentieth century.
