Neil M. Gunn in June 1927. Neil Miller Gunn (8th November 1891-15th January 1973) was a prolific novelist, critic and dramatist who emerged as one of the leading lights of the Scottish Renaissance of the 1920s and 1930s. With over 20 novels to his credit, Gunn was arguably the most influential Scottish fiction writer of the first half of the 20th century (with the possible exception of Lewis Grassic Gibbon). His fiction dealt primarily with the Highland communities and landscapes of his youth. Born in Dunbeath, his father was the captain of a herring boat, and Gunn's fascination with the sea and the courage of fishermen can be traced directly back his childhood memories of his father's work. In 1910 Gunn became a Customs and Excise Officer, remaining one throughout the First World War and until he was well established as a writer in 1937. Gunn married Jessie Dallas Frew (or 'Daisy') in 1921 and they settled in Inverness, near his permanent excise post at the Glen Mhor distillery. By the time of this photo, he had written the novel The Grey Coast (1926) with The Lost Glen following in 1928. Highland River came in 1937 and The Silver Darlings in 1941.
