Brownsbank Cottage

From 1952 until his death in 1978 Hugh MacDiarmid lived at Brownsbank Cottage just to the east of the town of Biggar, South Lanarkshire. His wife Valda lived on there until her death in 1989.

Hugh MacDiarmid (born Christopher Murray Grieve) 1892 – 1978 is acknowledged to have been Scotland’s greatest poet of the twentieth century, and a Modernist writer of international significance. His work continues to permeate and shape Scottish identity in our time.
