Plaque tribute to Grassic Gibbon
Sunset Song author Lewis Grassic Gibbon’s time in Stonehaven is to be recognised as part of Historic Environment Scotland’s Commemorative Plaque scheme.
Grassic Gibbon was born James Leslie Mitchell in Aberdeenshire in 1901.
He started his writing career as a journalist for the Aberdeen Journal in 1917, before turning his hand to fiction.
The plaque is to be installed at the site of the old Mackie Academy in Stonehaven – now Arduthie Primary – the school the writer attended during his formative years in Aberdeenshire.
The announcement comes during Book Week Scotland, the nation’s annual celebration of books and reading.
