Neil M Gunn

Photograph of Neil M GunnNeil Gunn was born on 8 November 1891 in the house next to the grocer's shop in Dunbeath. His father was a fisherman and the young Neil Gunn played near the harbour or and the river.

The area abounds with places that appear in his books.

The Dunbeath River is an obvious "Highland River"

His famous Kenn in Highland River portrayed in the small statue at the harbour reveals the area though his eyes to the reader. Taking a walk in the area shows all the places that Kenn reveals to the reader.
