Bust of Neil M Gunn

This bust of Neil M Gunn (1891-1973) is in the Carnegie Library building in Wick

Neil (Miller) Gunn was born in Dunbeath, a small fishing and crofting community in Caithness, North East Scotland, in 1891. Although he was educated in Galloway, he grew up with a love of the Highlands and Highland culture and, as an adult, he returned to the North East to live and work.

He was a prolific novelist, critic and dramatist who emerged as one of the leading lights of the "Scottish Renaissance" of the 1920s and 1930s.
