Grassic Gibbon Centre

The author of the famous trilogy of novels, A Scots Quair, James Leslie Mitchell (1901-1935), whose pen name was Lewis Grassic Gibbon, was particularly influenced by the Mearns countryside around Arbuthnott where he spent his teenage years. His life and work are commemorated in the small Grassic Gibbon Centre and a stone monument in memory of the author stands to the left of the cemetery entrance.
