Neil M Gunn

Neil M Gunn was born in the village of Dunbeath, Caithness on the 8th of November 1891. After several years growing up as a boy and teenager in the village he went on to become one of Scotland's most important twentieth century authors, creating classic novels such as The Silver Darlings, Morning Tide and The Highland River, which was set in Dunbeath the village of his birth.

Even though he moved away from Dunbeath at a young age and was then associated with other great writers, poets and artists of his time, he never forgot the wild landscape and great characters of his childhood upbringing.

Through out his later life and career he would frequently return to Dunbeath and Caithness to work and visit, which gave him great inspiration to write some of his best work.

Neil M Gunn died on 15th of January 1973, but his recognition and critical acclaim has continued to grow and his work is probably more popular now than in his lifetime.
