Return to Brownsbank

A film by Carolyn Scott and Andy Sim with music by Steven Gellatly.

In 2019, a quarter of a century after he lived there, the author James Robertson returned to Brownsbank, former home of Hugh MacDiarmid, one of 20th-century Scotland’s greatest cultural figures. The two years James spent in the tiny cottage were life-changing. In this short film, he reflects on MacDiarmid’s legacy, and the continuing national importance of a seemingly insignificant place just a few miles from Biggar.
