An exhibition of poems, portraits and landscapes at the Scottish Storytelling Centre in Edinburgh by Alan Riach, Alexander Moffat and Ruth Nicol marks the centenary of the poet Hugh MacDiarmid and focuses attention on the future of Brownsbank Cottage near Biggar, where he lived from 1951 until his death in 1978.

The poems reflect MacDiarmid’s life and work, while the portraits show him with his colleagues in the Scottish Renaissance movement, as well as close friends. The landscapes of Langholm and Shetland represent the southernmost and northernmost locations that the poet was associated with during his long life.
